NHTSA Designates May as Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month

A motorcycle accident can happen at any time, leaving you or a loved one with a serious injury. That is why the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has set aside the month of May as Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month.


Why Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month

Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month is a national initiative designed to remind all motorists of motorcycle safety. All drivers are encouraged to “share the road” with each other.


Motorcycle accidents can prove fatal

Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month is designed to save lives. In 2010:
  • Motorcyclist fatalities reached 4,502.
  • Motorcyclist fatalities accounted for 14 percent of all fatalities
  • Approximately 42 percent of motorcyclists killed were not wearing a helmet
  • Approximately 51 percent of motorcycle passengers were not wearing a helmet
