Florida is the most dangerous state for motorcycle riders. It has the most motorcycle accidents and the most motorcycle fatalities. Even so, motorcycles are astonishingly popular in Florida, with more than half a million registered motorcycles in the state. Florida also hosts the Daytona Beach Bike Week, one of the largest motorcycling events in the world.
As we noted above, there are some fairly common reasons for motorcycle accidents in Florida.
They happen most often because of
However, you want to explain it, a lot of motorcycles are in accidents in Florida every day. The results of those accidents can be, and often are, catastrophic. Because cars and trucks are bigger and heavier than motorcycles and because motorcycles provide virtually no built-in protection from a crash for their riders, the motorcyclist is virtually always the loser in any collision with a car or truck.
Whether crushed by the other vehicle or the cycle or violently thrust from the cycle, the cyclist has virtually no protection and faces exposure to the physics of the crash. As a result, the fatality rate for motorcyclists in Florida is roughly six times the rate for passenger occupants in accidents.
Some of the life-altering injuries that can result from a motorcycle accident are:

Motorcycle accidents are common in Tampa for many reasons. First, motorcycles simply aren’t as easy to see as other cars or trucks. This lack of visibility means that vehicles making lane changes or turns often hit motorcycles.
Part of the reason for the visibility issue is, of course, the ever-increasing rate of distracted driving. Too many people pay attention to too many different things when driving. And many of these distracted drivers are older drivers, with Florida’s already high elderly population increasing every day.
In addition to good weather and lots of bikes, Tampa also has many good roads. Interstate highways offer great opportunities to ride at high speed, while the scenery is gorgeous almost everywhere. You might think that great weather pretty consistently adds to this. However, the four-month hurricane season means dangerous weather.
With dangerous streets and intersections, and Florida’s lack of a helmet requirement, accidents will be frequent and dangerous. Tampa is home to the second most dangerous intersection for motorcycles in Florida at Hanley Road and Waters Avenue. Just about anything that intersects Highway 19 is also dangerous. In some years, Highway 19 locations account for more than a third of Pinellas County traffic accidents. Quote Wizard puts Tampa in the top five in the United States for traffic accidents.
