New Jersey Motorcycle Collisions
Motorcycle accidents are often deadly for those involved. In 2016, 5,286 motorcyclists were killed in vehicle collisions. This is a significant increase of 5.1 percent from the previous year.
Motorcyclists are more often involved in serious crashes for two main reasons. They are much smaller than other vehicles, making them much harder to see. There is also little safety provided to riders to protect them from serious injuries.
