Arizona Motorcycle Accident Statistics
With beautiful desert scenery, forests, mountains, the Grand Canyon, and two dozen national monuments, memorials, historic sites, and parks, Arizona is an ideal state to explore from the back of a motorcycle.
Unfortunately, for all our state has to offer, it also poses a significant threat to the average motorcycle rider. Crash data from the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) shows that in 2021:
- There were 2,594 motorcycle accidents
- Motorcycles represented 89% of all registered vehicles and were involved in 2.14% of all accidents
- 163 people were killed in accidents involving motorcycles
- Drunk driving caused approximately 27% of fatal motorcycle crashes
ADOT data also shows that you are most likely to be involved in a motorcycle crash between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. Additionally, motorcycle accidents are also more likely to occur in urban settings during daylight hours. Certain road conditions, including wet or gravel-covered roads, also increase the risk of suffering injuries in a motorcycle wreck.
