According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 80% of motorcycle accidents result in death or serious injury, and riders are 27 times more likely than passengers in passenger vehicles to die in a motorbike accident. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, wearing a helmet decreases the chance of mortality by around 37%.
