The unfortunate reality is that we share the road with people who are often distracted and not on the lookout for bikers. According to the National Highway Safety Administration, 4,502 motorcyclists were involved in fatal motorcycle accidents in 2010. With the frequency of these accidents, it is more important than ever for bikers to be alert and aware on the roadways.
Statistics show that, per mile driven, motorcyclists are 37 times more likely than a passenger car occupant to die in a traffic accident and 9 times more likely to be injured.
We have seen how devastating motorcycle accidents can be, and we encourage all riders to take a motorcycle safety course. Many times, motorcycle accidents occur because car or truck drivers are distracted or inexperienced. Unfortunately, a day that starts with a beautiful ride can end in tragedy because of a careless driver.
