Tens of thousands of motorcycle riders commute through Phoenix, Arizona, on a daily basis because of the ideal Phoenix weather. Also, the cost of fueling, operating and buying a motorcycle is significantly less than the cost involved with driving a car. However, due to the increased number of vehicles on the road in Phoenix, motorcycle accidents have been on the rise. And when a motorcyclist is involved in an accident, it can be life-changing. Motorcycle drivers typically suffer serious injuries and long-term disabilities, as well as death. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in Arizona, Phoenix motorcyclists have a five and a half times greater chance of being in a fatal accident than someone who is in a car.
If you are a motorist in Phoenix, you should be concerned by the rising number of motorcycle accidents. According to NHTSA, drunk driving causes 30% of these accidents. Another factor in motorcyle accidents is that riders are less protected compared to other motorists. For example, they lack the protection that airbags and seatbelts offer. As a result, motorcyclists are more likely than other motorists to die in an accident. The NHTSA report indicates that 14% of the total accidents in Phoenix involve motorcyclists. This amounts to 5,000 motorcycle deaths every year and over 88,000 injuries. These accidents can happen anywhere at any time and, in most circumstances, the motorcyclists are the victims. What’s more, the NHTSA indicates that these injured motorcyclists are not at fault in about 80% of the accidents. According to the Center for Urban Transportation Research, the blame for these accidents goes to the drivers of the passenger vehicles. These wrecks cause great loss in terms of injuries, medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
