According to the Australian Transport Safety Bureau and the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, the overall number of motorcycle-related fatalities in Australia has increased by 36% since 1999. (22% since 2004)
The rate of serious injury in terms of vehicle kilometres travelled was 34 times higher for motorcyclist than car occupants, with the proportion of motorcycle-related fatalities unacceptably high compared with other OECD countries.
“The increased use of motorcycles was clearly one of the reasons that reductions in deaths were less than expected. The number of deaths of motorcyclists in road crashes increased while the numbers of deaths of other road users either declined or remained the same”.
