Motorcycling is often considered one of the most adventurous and enjoyable forms of travel. For those in Florida that ride, Daytona Beach’s bike week is a rite of passage that must not be missed. As the popularity of utilizing motorcycles continues to rise, so does the rate of danger of a motrocycle accident. This American pastime has become increasingly dangerous because of the negligence of other drivers. Florida’s growing population and popularity with motorcycle enthusiasts makes motorcycle safety an important issue. The number of motorcycle crashes, fatalities, and injuries in the United States has increased in recent years, and Sarasota and Manatee County Florida has seen the same trend. In 2015, 606 motorcyclists died in Florida due to motorcycle accidents, a figure that has climbed 30 percent since 2014, according to the study by AAA. The study also shows that motorcycles account for 3 percent of registered vehicles, yet they are involved in 20 percent of vehicle fatalities in the state.
Though many believe that the younger generation as the ones getting involved in motorcycle accidents, this is hardly the truth in Florida. Florida median age of someone fatally injured in a motorcycle accident is forty two (42). The age group of forty five to fifty four (45-54) accounts for most injuries.
Florida is a popular tourist destination and does host a number of motorcycle enthusiast events. However, ninety four (94%) percent of motorcyclists fatally injured in Florida were residents of this state.
