Motorcycle Accident Statistics

Allstate insurance's website includes some sobering statistics regarding motorcycle accidents. On the page, it states that 46% of all motorcycle crashes occur at intersections. It also states that, on average, three motorcyclists are killed every day in the United States as a result of multi-vehicle crashes at intersections.

Some of the tips listed on the site for safer operation of motorcycles include:

- Test the lights, brakes and turn signals

- Check the oil and fuel levels

- Ensure proper positioning of your mirrors

- Check to make sure cables aren't worn

- Make sure the chain is properly lubed

- Complete a rider safety course

- Purchase a high quality helmet and jacket

- Wear non-slip gloves and boots
