Motorcycle Accidents Are More DeadlyFlorida has the most motorcycle fatalities because there are more motorcycles on the road. Motorcycle accidents are more likely to be deadly because there is nothing to protect the motorcyclist from the road and from the impact of the crash. Motorcycles do not have safety features like seatbelts and airbags to protect riders in a crash.
No Helmet LawFlorida currently has no helmet laws for motorcyclists and that has been debated in recent years. Those who support helmet laws argue that helmets save lives by absorbing the impact in a crash, reducing brain injuries and fatalities. Recent statistics show helmeted riders accounted for 47% of motorcycle fatalities in Florida in 2019 and unhelmeted riders made up 51% with 2% unknown.
