Fatal Motorcycle Crashes in Michigan
The motorcycle fatality rate in Michigan is 16.2 per 100 million miles traveled. Compared to the car fatality rate of one per 100 million kilometers, this is a significant increase. Motorcycles only make up less than 0.3% of all registered vehicles in the state, but in 2016, they were involved in around 1% of all Michigan traffic accidents. A motorcycle rider is harmed in a car accident in Michigan every 4 hours and 2 minutes, and their injuries are often more worse than those of passenger vehicle occupants.
