  2. 2. Overview<br />Introduction to motorcycles<br />Motorcycles versus motor-vehicles<br />Types of motorcycle injuries<br />Motorcycle facts<br />Likelihood of motorcycle fatalities<br />Out of all motorcycle accidents<br />Out of all accidents<br />Out of all fatalities<br />
  3. 3. Overview (…Continued)<br />Fatalities by age group<br />Motorcycles versus motor-vehicles<br />Registration & interesting facts<br />Conclusion & suggestions<br />
  4. 4. Introduction To Motorcycles<br />Motorcycle<br />Single track, two-wheeled motor vehicle<br />Most affordable form of motorized transport in many parts of the world, including U.S.<br />Approximately 200 million motorcycles in <br /> use worldwide<br />Highest rate of accident among motorized vehicles <br />
  5. 5. Motorcycles & motor-vehicles<br />Typical driver:<br />Near-automobile accident 1-2 times each month<br />Collision every 6 years<br />Injury rate: 1.2 times higher for motorcycle riders (compared to car riders)<br />Fatality rate: 5.5 times higher for motorcycle riders (compared to car riders)<br />
  6. 6. Trauma Center Admissions Most Common<br />
  7. 7. Motorcycle Accident Facts<br />Of motorcycle riders in fatal crashes:<br /> 36% were speeding<br />26% did not have valid licenses<br />27% had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) over 0.08 percent.<br />Decline in helmet use:<br />Helmet use declined 20% in 6 years (2001-2006)<br />
  8. 8. PA Resident Fatalities<br />PA fatalities: 225<br />Nationwide fatalities: 5,154<br />4.37%of 2007 fatalities were PA residents<br />
  9. 9. Likelihood of a motorcycle fatality (out of all motorcycle accidents)<br />4,111 motorcycle accidents in PA<br />225 accidents = fatal<br />The likelihood of a motorcycle fatality is 5.4%<br />
  10. 10. Likelihood of a motorcycle fatality (out of all accidents)?<br /><ul><li>12 million + motor vehicle accidents each year
  11. 11. This includes 20 million + vehicles
  12. 12. Result: 5 million non-fatal accidents</li></ul>- National Safety Council (NSA)<br />The likelihood of a motorcycle fatality is 4%<br />
  13. 13. Likelihood of a motorcycle fatality (out of all fatalities)?<br />Motorcycle fatalities in 2008: 5,290<br />Motor vehicle accident deaths: 46,000<br /><ul><li>National Safety Council (NSC)</li></ul>Likelihood of a motorcycle fatality is 11.5%<br />
  14. 14. Most Fatalities Age 40+<br />
  15. 15. Registered vehicles: fatalities & miles traveled<br />
  16. 16. Registered Motorcycles Today<br />75% more registered motorcycles today than 10 years ago( 1999= 4,152,433)<br />Today there are about 7,266,758registered motorcycles<br />
  17. 17. Registered Motorcycles & Fatal Accidents<br /># of registered bikes expected to be involved in a fatal accident: 5,427<br />This includes 1,682riders from our age group (30 years and younger)<br />It also includes approximately 1,000 riders who were speeding<br />Out of the 5,427could have been saved by wearing a helmet<br />
  18. 18. Miles Traveled Per Motorcycle<br />Total vehicle miles traveled = 10.5 k<br />Total number of registered bikes today = 7,266,758<br />Each motorcycle travels an average of 690miles.<br />
  19. 19. Interesting Facts <br />In America , 75.19 per 100,000 fatal crashes occur per registered motorcycle vehicle compared to 18.62 for 100,000 registered vehicles .<br />The U.S has non-profit motorcycle safety organizations like MSF (Motorcycle Safety Foundation) to prevent and reduce accidents.<br />
  20. 20. Conclusion<br />Based on injury and fatality rates, motorcycle riders are more likely to be injured or die in an accident (compared to people riding in a car).<br />The most common motorcycle injuries result in admission to a trauma center.<br />Most motorcycle fatalities involve people age 40 and over.<br />
  21. 21. Suggestions<br />New safety precautions<br />Required safety trainings<br />Stricter helmet laws (because of usage decline)<br />Frequent riding tests to renew licenses<br />Updated, enforced laws<br />Higher fines for speeding (36% speeding in fatal)<br />License validation checks (26% not valid in fatal)<br />Alcohol checks (27% high BAC in fatal)<br />
