As a motorcyclist, you understand the importance of safety and have taken a number of special precautions to reduce the hazards you face when riding a motorcycle. Unfortunately, many drivers of passenger vehicles fail in their responsibility to share the road and often cause motorcycle incidents to happen because of their negligence.
In 2007, The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released its report on motorcycles showing 103,000 reported motorcyclist injuries and 5,154 related fatalities in the United States alone. They also reported that motorcyclists are approximately 35 times more likely to die in a traffic accident than occupants of a passenger vehicle.
In comparison with the extensive safety features that passenger vehicles provide, motorcycles offer very little protection in the event of an accident. Because of this, motorcycle collisions typically result in serious injuries or even death.
