National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that 4,668 motorcyclists were killed and an estimated 88,000 motorcyclists were injured in 2013. These numbers are slightly less than 2012.

In 2013, Pennsylvania had 182 motorcyclist fatalities. Most of these motorcyclists were not wearing helmets. The NHTSA estimates that helmets saved 1,630 lives in 2013, and that 715 more could have been saved if all motorcyclists had worn helmets.
