Motorcycle Safety

May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month

Motorcycle Safety Poster
Motorcycle crashes involving another motor vehicle continue to account for nearly half of all motorcyclist fatalities in the United States. Motorcyclists are basically at more risk than motor vehicles because they lack many of the same safety features of automobiles. Motorcyclists are 27 times more likely to die in a crash than other motorists.  NHTSA has a vested interest in looking at the types of motorist behaviors that pose a risk to motorcyclists. In years past, these efforts have been bundled under the title of "Share The Road".


The Motorcycle Safety Program promotes safe motorcycle riding through rider training courses and public information programs.
