Motorcycle Accident Statistics in Arizona
Every year, we have thousands of motorcycle wrecks in our state. Gilbert, AZ can be an incredible place to take your motorbike for a spin, but just like any city or any state, drivers in Arizona might not spot motorcyclists as easily as they spot other drivers in regular vehicles. This is why collisions between motorcycles and other vehicles can cause such devastating results—the differences in size and levels of exposure.
The Arizona Department of Transportation creates crash reports every year that detail the number of accidents and the data surrounding those crashes so that the department can evaluate trends. The look at the total number of crashes, how many fatalities are caused, injuries suffered, and how many only cause property damage.
Here are the numbers from the 2020 report:
- 2,373 total moto wrecks
- 163 fatal crashes
- 1,855 injury-causing crashes
- 355 property damage only crashes
These values show how motorcycle wrecks disproportionately cause injuries and fatalities compared to only property damage, as 85 percent of all moto wrecks result in injuries or fatalities. Comparatively, car crashes that only cause property damage account for nearly 70 percent of all collisions. This shows that accidents involving motorcycles are inherently more dangerous.
