Riding a motorcycle is a dream for many as they are growing up. The idea of flying down the road, feeling the wind in your hair and having the freedom to move in and out of traffic is that dream coming true. But the reality is that Florida ranks first in the Nation with 20% more motorcycle fatalities than in any other state.
Studies show that the likelihood of becoming another fatality statistic is increased 20 times more for each mile traveled on a motorcycle than the risk for someone in a motor vehicle. According to a report published by the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration, there were 616 motorcycle fatalities and 9,054 injuries in Florida for the year 2015.
