Along with the feeling of freedom and independence that comes with motorcycling is the unfortunate fact that accidents that involve motorcycles usually result in catastrophic, if not fatal, injuries. The National Highway Transportation Safety Authority (NHTSA) says motorcyclists are 26 times more likely to die in a collision that the drivers and passengers of the car or truck that hit them. Fatality statistics from motorcycle accidents in New Jersey vary. However, in 2013, about 70 people died in biker accidents and another 2,000 suffered serious injuries.

The Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) released a report, Motorcyclist Traffic Fatalities by State, which analyzed motorcycle fatalities throughout the United States year over year from 2013 through 2014 (January through September of each year). The report showed a number of sobering statistics.
On the positive side, the number of fatal motorcycle accidents in the United States actually decreased, very slightly, about 2 percent, between 2013 and 2014. Now for the sobering news: fatal motorcycle accidents have doubled in the past 25 years since 1990. Further, the number of motorcycle crashes that end in fatalities are rising in New Jersey.
