Motorcycles vs. Cars: Most Dangerous

Here’s another great infographic, and another Motorcycles vs. Cars comparison. This one looks at the risks and dangers of riding a motorcycle versus driving a car. The infographic brings up a few important points:

  • The infographic lists crash rates per vehicle mile travelled, but does it include parking lot spills?
  • The number of alcohol related injuries is close, but does anyone know whether these are the young hot headed riders drinking and crashing, or the oldschool, over-confident seasoned biker vets?
  • The motorcycle fatalities stats are interesting, as were the breakdown of who’s most likely to ride a motorcycle.

    I think there are more reckless motorists than bikers.

  2. Very good job and totally true, but i love motorcycle…jajajaj

  3. Several types MC accidents aren’t car related; debris in roadway, steel cover plates in wet conditions, roto-milled pavement, steel grating on bridges, rippled asphalt at stop lights, truck tires slinging missiles, road creaters, sand-gravel-on roadway, generalized road signs (rough road)(highway work) which can mean a multitude of things. Being rear-ended while waiting for light, how about a rear spear to puncture A/C & radiator?

What do you think?
