Florida Motorcycle Collisions

According to A Safer Florida, a Florida organization dedicated to keeping roadways safe across the state, a total of 10,331 motorcycle accidents in Florida occurred in 2016. These led to 515 rider fatalities, 30 passenger deaths, and 8,256 injuries.

Florida leads the nation in the number of motorcycle fatalities and injuries that occur there yearly, according to the statistics provided by the US Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 

From 1997 to the beginning of 2015, fatal motorcycle accidents across the US have increased from a low of just over 2,100 deaths a year to over 4,500 annually, reaching an all-time high of well over 5,000 in 2007. The yearly average now ranges between 4,300 to 4,800 nationally. According to these annual amounts, the number of motorcycle deaths in the United States has more than doubled during this time frame. 

A traffic collision in Florida is estimated to take place approximately once every 84 seconds, or over 1,000 times per day. Yearly, Florida sees about 400,000 traffic accidents take place. Florida is ranked as one of the most dangerous states to travel through due to its high accident-fatality rate. However, Florida is one of the most highly-populated states in the nation, which directly correlates with its statistical values.
