According to the California Highway Patrol, 411 motorcyclists were killed and an additional 9,347 were injured in traffic collisions in California in 2005. Despite the fact only 2.1% of all vehicles registered in California are motorcycles, motorcyclists account for 9.4% of all traffic fatalities statewide .
Motorcycles are an attractive alternative in Southern California due to the climate and their ability to navigate through traffic congestion, park in small spaces, and fuel economy. Unfortunately, they lack the weight, outer protections, and safety features of automobiles.
Auto accidents involving bicyclists can result in serious injuries, including:
- Broken Bones
- Torn Ligaments
- Concussion/Brain Injuries
- Cuts & Abrasions
