Get Regular Safety and Emissions Tests to Prevent Motorcycle Crashes
Motorcycle Emissions Tests
Recently, Arizona lawmakers put in a request to eliminate the requirement for emissions testing on motorcycles, but there is much argument that testing is essential in preventing motorcycle crashes. We have heard both arguments on each side.
Many motorcycle riders believe that riders should always make safety and emissions testing and inspections one of the most important things they do every year. By getting your motorcycle tested on a yearly basis, you can keep yourself safe. Mechanics who perform testing and inspections can alert you to serious problems, including:
- gas and oil leaks;
- problems with your brakes that could lead to a serious accident;
- problems with your ignition; and
- problems with your headlights or horn that could make you more difficult to spot for drivers who aren’t paying close attention to the road.
Pima County Motorcycle Accident Statistics
Every year, we see motorcycle riders that are involved in crashes that resulted in very serious injuries or fatal injuries.
More than 3,000 motorcycle accidents are reported statewide each year and cause injuries to around 2,550 motorcycle riders and their passengers. The motorcycle communities are very tight and almost every motorcycle rider knows someone who has been involved in a serious crash or sustained fatal wounds. Around 130 riders are killed as a result of their involvement in collisions with vehicles, according to recent data reports. When a loved one is killed in a motorcycle accident it is devastating for the entire community.
