Although motorcycle accidents happen every day, we are seeing improvements. The rise of motorcycle safety organizations and advocacy groups seems to have had an impact on motorcycle accident safety statistics. The injury rate, as measured by on-road motorcycle registrations, has decreased significantly, from 40.6 injuries per 10,000 new motorcycle registrations in 1994/1995 to 21.5 injuries per 10,000 registrations in 1999/2000. Rising awareness of motorcyclists’ road rights and national success in motorcycle litigation have played a part in the decrease of motorcycle accidents and injuries.
