California is a hotbed of motorcycle accident stories.
As a state, it is home to the world’s highest motorcycle fatalities per capita, and it is one of the top 10 states in the country for accidents involving pedestrians and bicyclists.
This year, a total of 5,835 people were killed in California, and a further 1,842 were injured, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
A total of 6,069 people died in motor vehicle accidents in 2016.
In 2016, the US is on track to surpass the number of motorcycle fatalities in the year prior, and the total number of fatalities in 2016 was nearly twice the number in 2015.
Despite this, there is a strong trend in the US towards safer driving practices.
For instance, the National Safety Council, an organisation of more than 50,000 US motor vehicle safety experts, published an overview of the state of the US motorcycle safety situation, noting that: Despite recent progress in safety improvements, we are not anywhere near the level of safety that we should be.
There is a serious need for federal and state leaders to take concrete actions to address the critical safety issues facing motorcyclists in America, including improving motorcycle safety standards, reducing crashes, and improving public education.
The National Safety Institute is a non-profit organisation based in Arlington, Virginia, dedicated to protecting motorcyclist safety and promoting safe motorcycle riding.
In addition to the NHTSA, the Safety Institute works with national, state and local authorities to promote motorcycle safety, promote education and advocacy and advocate for legislative reform.
The Safety Institute publishes research, analysis and policy reports, including the Safety and Road Conditions report, the Road Safety Analysis Report, and other important data on motorcyclism safety and related issues.
In 2017, the Institute’s Road Safety Policy Report ranked the states of California, Florida, Hawaii, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Ohio among the safest in the United States.
While it is still a relatively young industry, motorcycle accidents in the state have been on the decline for several years.
In fact, the number and frequency of motorcycle crashes in California have dropped from 8,722 in 2016 to 5,830 in 2017.
However, the rate of fatal motorcycle crashes have remained fairly constant.
In terms of the number, the state is one the most populous states in America and is home, according the NHDSA, to more than 20% of the country’s total population.
As with any industry, there are some risks associated with riding a motorcycle.
These include riding with a family member, riding in crowded areas, using other vehicles and riding while intoxicated.
While many people think that riding a bike in the dark is dangerous, many riders will be more cautious when they are out in public.
While there are many ways to reduce your risk of getting injured while riding a motorbike, the safest way to do so is to keep your eyes on the road.
