Motorcycle Accidents in Utah
Deadly collisions are a danger encountered by motorcyclists much more than the passengers or driver of any other kind of car or truck. Taking into account the fact that riders have no protection between their body, the pavement, or other vehicles, the injuries they receive are typically severe or fatal.
Even the most cautious of motorcyclists have greatly increased odds of sustaining injuries during a traffic collision when compared to the occupant of a passenger vehicle.
Although just 3% of registered vehicles in Utah are motorcycles, the state’s Department of Public Safety has documented that Utah witnessed a total of 273 accident fatalities in 2017, 39 of which, about 14%, were riding motorcycles.
According to newly collected data reviewed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, people who ride motorcycles incur five timesthe risk of being injured than others involved in the crash.
