WHY HAS THE NUMBER OF MOTORCYCLE DEATHS REMAINED VIRTUALLY STEADY WHILE THE NUMBER OF TRADITIONAL CAR DEATHS HAS DECLINED?

The number of deaths associated with motorcycle deaths is exponentially larger than the number of deaths associated with car accidents. That is a fact recognized by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the United States Department of Transportation. Certainly, we all recognize that motorcycles provide less protection that traditional vehicles, and they are provide less stability to drivers. But, one problem that remains is the lack of uniformity in the laws requiring helmets while riding motorcycles, and head injuries remain one of the primary causes of motorcycle deaths.
