Older Utahns More Likely to Have Motorcycle Accidents

posted March 1, 2013 | by

A recent study shows that older motorcycle riders are up to 3 times as likely to be involved in a motorcycle crash than someone who is younger. According to KSL News, the study cites decreasing eyesight, rusty skills and slower reflexes for this trend. “For people over 50, the risk of injury is 247 percent higher,” says Dan Terry, a motorcycle instructor at Salt Lake Community College. Injuries that older riders suffer include broken bones, injured necks and head injuries.

Terry recommends that older motorcycle riders keep their skills sharp by taking courses, including a course that he offers (how convenient!). Go to www.utahmotorcycletraining.com for more information.
