The steady decline in motorcycle accidents continues. After a brief increase in 2014, the number of fatal motorcycle accidents fell by 16.8 percent from 2015 to 2016. This is borne out by current figures from the Federal Statistical Office.

The office put the total number of bikers fatally injured on German roads from January to December 2016 at 526, in the previous year it was 632 and in 2014 it was 675. The number of motorcycle accidents also fell by 3.2 percent to 29,020 in 2016 generally.

16,302 of these registered motorcycle accidents happened outside the city in 2016 (decrease from 2015: five percent), 12718 within built-up areas (decrease: 0.8 percent).
