Trends in deaths due to motorcycle crashes and risk factors in injury collisions

, : Trends in deaths due to motorcycle crashes and risk factors in injury collisions. Accident Analysis and Prevention 8(4): 247-255

In the past 25 yr, the numbers of registered motorcycles in the USA and California increased about 1000 and 1100%, respectively. In the same period, the motorcycle collision death rate per million population more than doubled. Time trends in deaths due to motorcycle collisions were examined, a methodologic problem in the study of motor vehicle collision death rates was examined and driver and vehicle factors which may discriminate in the production of motorcycle crash related injuries were determined. With the exception of 1974, the increase in the ratio of registered motorcycles per 100,000 population in the USA corresponded to an increase in the crude death rate per million population. A similar pattern was found in California. Stepwise discriminant analysis was used to determine an optimum set of factors associated with motorcycle collision injuries. For male drivers age was the single factor most significantly related to motorcycle collision injuries. Other factors, in addition to age, adding to the power of the discrimination included number of prior motorcycle driving violations, frequency of motorcycle use, number of prior motorcycle crashes, motorcycle drivers' training and height of the drivers.
