The picture is much as previous years, with car accidents gradually coming down but motorcycle injuries and fatalities remaining high and flat over recent years.
You can see the highest risk of fatalities is not motorways but rural roads, more so for bikers. 43% of the traffic but 57% of the fatalities.
When you look at fatalities, the information is somewhat stark compared to other road users, with 3 times the rate of any other vulnerable road user. But to put the rate into context, only 336 riders suffered fatal injuries in 2019, compared to an estimated 6,000 deaths at home due mainly to falls. Ladders are far more dangerous than motorcycles – further to fall.
Above are the full stats by vehicle type. Failing to pay proper attention is consistently the main cause.
