Michigan Motorcycle Accidents

This represents a considerable increase over the vehicle fatality rate of one per 100 million miles. Motorcycles only account for less than 0.3% of all registered vehicles, but they were involved in about 1% of all traffic accidents in Michigan in 2016. Every 4 hours and 2 minutes, a motorcyclist is hurt in a Michigan car accident, and these injuries are typically significantly more severe than those suffered by passengers in motor vehicles.
