While most types of motor vehicle accidents have decreased in recent years, the number of people injured or killed as a result of motorcycle accidents continues to increase. According to data from the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) more than 5,000 motorcyclists were fatally injured in 2008, an increase of more than two percent from the previous year.
Most motorcycle accidents are the result of careless or reckless drivers, which may include speeding, aggressive driving, drunk driving, failure to obey the rules of the road and inattentiveness.
