According to the latest statistics from Think!, Motorcyclists are approximately 38 times more like to be killed in a road traffic accident than car occupants, per mile ridden.
In 2013, 331 motorcyclists died and 4866 were seriously injured in road collisions in Great Britain. Motorcycle accidents are out of proportion to the presence of motorcycles on our roads.
38 motorcyclists a day are killed or injured
Motorcyclists are just 1% of total road traffic, but account for 19% of all road user deaths. Rather shockingly, around 38 motorcyclists are killed or injured at junctions every day. Thankfully, the number of motorcyclists killed or seriously injured in road traffic accidents has fallen each year since 2008.
