Motorcycle dealerships are the second-most dangerous occupation after car dealerships, according to a report released Monday by the Consumer Federation of America.
While there are more than 100,000 motorcycle dealerships in the United States, about 12,000 of them are owned by individuals, according the CFA.
That means nearly 3 million Americans work in motorcycle dealers, and that’s only one-third of the total number of people who own a motorcycle.
The CFA found that dealerships that employ employees over the age of 40 are the third-most-dangerous occupation in the country.
The study also found that the most serious type of injury, the death of a motorcycle rider, is the second most common type of motor vehicle accident in the U.S. in 2018, behind only car accidents.
The report also found the number of motorcycle fatalities is at its lowest level since 2000, and the number and type of injuries from motorcycle crashes are also on the decline.
