Traffic Safety Facts 2011 : motorcycles.


In 2011, 4,612 motorcyclists were killed in motor vehicle traffic crashes–an increase of 2 percent from the 4,518 motorcyclists killed in 2010. There were 81,000 motorcyclists injured during 2011, a slight decrease from 82,000 in 2010. The following definitions apply to terms used throughout this fact sheet: the motorcycle rider is the individual operating the motorcycle; the passenger is a person seated on, but not operating, the motorcycle; the motorcyclist is a general term referring to either the rider or passenger. NHTSA publications prior to 2007 may not reflect this terminology. The following vehicles are included in the definition of motorcycle: mopeds, two- or three-wheeled motorcycles, off-road motorcycles, scooters, mini bikes, and pocket bikes. In 2011, two-wheeled motorcycles accounted for 94 percent of motorcycle body types in fatal crashes. (Author/publisher)
