NHTSA report states motorcycle accidents in U.S. declined in 2013

The number of fatalities in motorcycle accidents across the United States dropped by 6.4% in 2013 from 2012, and the number of those injured declined by as much as 5.4%, a report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration showed.

American Motorcyclist Association president and chief executive officer Rob Dingman welcomed the development, saying “we are pleased to see the number [of fatalities and injuries] decline.” According to the NHTSA, the decline in motorcycle fatalities and injuries likely had a lot to do with the 8.3% decrease in the number of accidents in which alcohol was involved.

Though motorcycle incidents are declining, 88,000 injuries occurred on bikes.
