Motorcycle Collisions in New Jersey
In 2016, there were an estimated 2,200 motorcyclists involved in collisions in New Jersey. That year, 69 people were killed in motorcycle accidents in the state. Riders have a nearly 82% chance of being injured in the event of an accident.
Motorcyclists, even when they follow the necessary safety protocol, have little protection when colliding with a motor vehicle. Common road hazards like potholes, ice, cracks, or slick roads are a much greater risk for riders than drivers. Car crashes can leave riders paralyzed, as amputees, or with other types of permanent disability.
