Motorcycle Crashes in South Carolina

Pelzer, SC - Two Injured in Motorcycle Crash at US-29 & SC-8

Between 2011 and 2015, non-helmeted riders were involved in nearly 73% of fatal motorcycle accidents in South Carolina. According to crash statistics, motorcycle riders are nearly 27 times more likely to be killed in a car accident, with nearly 80 percent of motorcycle accidents resulting in death or serious injury. The rate of fatal motorcycle accidents in South Carolina is higher than the national average.

Motorcyclists are injured or killed daily in auto accidents across South Carolina. The frequency of fatal motorcycle crashes has been increasing across the United States. Not only are riders more likely to suffer severe injuries, but most drivers in passenger cars fail to look out for motorcyclists that share the road properly. This has contributed to a rise in devastating motorcycle collisions across the state. In fact, contrary to popular belief, the majority of motorcycle crashes in South Carolina are caused by the actions of reckless drivers who fail to safely share the roadway with motorcyclists.
