Across the state, motorcycle wrecks have more than doubled in the last 25 years, per the latest data published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Furthermore, recent crash statistics indicate that one in seven fatalities on roads nationwide occurred on a motorcycle. Due to the nature of riding, motorcyclists are far more vulnerable to serious injuries or even death than vehicle drivers, even while wearing helmets and protective gear.
