Texas Motorcycle Accident Statistics
When looking at the types of motorcycle accidents that occur in Arlington, it’s important to note the proportion of collisions that don’t cause any injuries compared to the amount that do.

- 1,084 non-injury crashes

- 2,559 non-incapacitating injury crashes
- 1,821 serious injury crashes

Looking at these numbers, you can see that it’s more common for a motorcycle wreck to lead to injuries than not. That’s why it’s so important to riders to wear all of the required and even the not required safety gear so that they are as protected as possible in the event of a crash.
In general, more of these collisions happened in urban areas as opposed to rural areas. However, both can be dangerous for motorcyclists if other motorists are not as careful as they need to be. Riders shouldn’t feel a safe sense of security on rural roads just because less wrecks happened there—you should remain aware no matter where you are.
