When more motorcycles are on the roads, less riders die. Almost paradoxical...
Ok fine you want Math...Steve Kenward, CEO of the Motorcycle Industry Association, said when 10% or more of vehicles on the road are motorcycles, mopeds or scooter, there is a proportionate reduction in rider fatalities.
More motorcycles equals safer roads, says MCIA - Motorcycle news : General news - VisordownJapan has 98 bikes per 1000 vehicles. For every 1000 bikes on the road, the country has 0.8 motorcyclist fatalities per year. In Europe the ratio of bikes to cars is lower, at 73 per 1000, and the rate of motorcyclist fatalities is higher, at 1.52 per 1000 bikes.
In the USA, the ratio of bikes to cars is just 27 per thousand and the motorcyclist fatality rate is much higher, at 5.32 per thousand bikes.
