According to Louisiana State University crash data, for the 5-year period between 2012 and 2016, 433 accidents involved motorcycles- with between 8 and 10% of all fatal auto accidents in Louisiana being strictly from motorcycle accidents. These crashes typically involved persons aged 20 to 29. The highest year for motorcycle accident fatalities in Louisiana was in 2006 with 95 reported deaths, although the number is projected to rise to 97 this year. Louisiana motorcycle accident statistics are impacted in a large part by the number of registered motorcycles. In the 5-year period between 2004 and 2008, the number of reported motorcycles rose steadily from 55,800 to nearly 70,000. This has also caused a steady increase in the number of fatalities simply because of the increase in number of motorcycles on the road.
