The American Motorcycle Association says that motorcycles are one of the most deadly forms of transportation.
While the organization doesn’t have a “top 10” list, it does say that the Baja 1000 has a higher death rate than any other motorcycle on the list.
Baja has a total of 17 fatalities since 1980, according to the group, which estimates that about 5,000 people die each year on the roads.
The organization estimates that between 7,000 and 10,000 motorcycle deaths occur annually in the U.S. The American Association of Motorcyclists says that there are about 400,000 motorcycles in the country.
The group is also pushing to change motorcycle laws to help reduce the risk of fatalities.
“If we could do the math, we could figure out how many motorcycles there are in the United States each year,” Robert Nitschke, the group’s executive director, told the Associated Press.
“We have a very high death rate from all of these motorcycles.
If we could make the laws more favorable, we would be a lot better off.”
In 2014, the American Association’s research found that motorcycle crashes caused more than 7,400 fatalities and 1,500 serious injuries each year.
The majority of the fatalities are from head-on collisions, with about half of all motorcycle deaths being in those instances.
According to the association, the average age of a motorcycle rider is 29 years old.
