According to the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), Broward County
holds the second largest amount of motorcycle fatalities in Florida after
Miami-Dade County. There’s no doubt that motorcycles are popular
in Florida, considering that it is a popular tourist destination and the
weather permits bike events year round. In fact, the FDOT reports that
factors such as population and proximity to motorcycle rallies play a
part when it comes to determining the numbers of motorcycle accidents
The popularity of motorcycles in also noted nationwide. The U.S. Department
of Transportation found that motorcycle registrations have been steadily
increasing, from close to 4 million registrations in 1997 to 6,678,958
in 2006 (the latest report). This is a 75 percent increase of motorcycle
registrations in a 10 year span, meaning the number of motorcyclists on
the road have almost doubled in the U.S.
As the number of motorcyclists continues to rise, so does the number of
distracted motor vehicle drivers, which plays a major role in motorcycle
accidents. Distracted vehicle driving is when people are driving while
trying to do another task that takes their attention from the road. With
the recent awareness campaigns on texting and driving, most people are
familiar with distracted driving due to texting, however, this is not
the only distraction that is hazardous while driving. In fact, eating,
applying makeup, daydreaming, and adjusting the radio are just a few examples
of dangerous distractions while driving.
The reason why texting is emphasized the most on distraction awareness
campaigns is because it requires your eyes off the road (visual), your
hands off the wheel (manual), and your mind off of driving (cognitive),
which are the 3 main distractions discussed by the Center for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC). A study conducted by the
Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, found that tasks performed in order to make a phone call such as looking
up a contact number and dialing a number increased the crash risk by three times.
