More Riders, Fewer Fatalities...

Ostensibly you would think that as the amount of riders increases the raw number of fatalities would also increase. Howeve, paradoxically the data indicates that as you increase motorcycles on the street chance of fatality diminishes...

Japan 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.

I know right. It's way too easy for people to get a drivers license and the amount of horrible drivers show that.
