Florida’s sunshine, tourist attractions, theme parks, and an array of annual motorcycle events draw millions of visitors to our state year-round. One extremely popular event is the Poker Run in Coconut Creek. Thousands of motorcycle riders participate in these events. However, the combination of residents and visitors means busier roadways and an increased risk for motorcycle accidents.
Motorcycle Accidents in Florida: Statistics and Facts
Motorcycle riders have far less protection than occupants in a standard vehicle; therefore, they are at a higher risk for injury and even death in the event of an accident. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 5,500 motorcyclists were killed in 2020.
Additionally, according to a 2020 report by the United States Department of Transportation (DOT), motorcyclist fatalities increased by 11% (which is the highest number since 1975).
The majority of injuries endured in motorcycle accidents involve the following:
- Legs and feet
- Head and neck
- Upper and lower trunk
- Arms and hands
The Florida Department of Transportation recommends the following safety precautions for riders:
- Wearing a DOT-approved helmet
- Wearing brighter colors
- Wearing reflective stickers on helmets, clothing, and other equipment
- Riding with extreme caution around curves
