Michigan Motorcycle Crashes
The motorbike fatality rate in Michigan was 16.2 per 100 million miles traveled last year. Compared to the one death per 100 million vehicle miles traveled for riders, this is a significant increase. Despite making up less than 0.3 percent of all registered vehicles, motorcycles were involved in roughly 1% of all Michigan traffic accidents last year. A motorcyclist was hurt every 4 hours and 2 minutes somewhere in the state, and their injuries are generally much more serious than those sustained by motor vehicle occupants.
In Michigan, car accidents continue to be the main cause of fatalities and serious injuries, and they happen every day across the state. Serious collisions can leave victims with lifelong bills and sometimes even permanent injuries.
