Motorcycles are without a doubt a fun and exciting way to travel. However, when involved in a crash, motorcyclists are at a much greater risk of suffering catastrophic injuries or death. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcycle deaths occur 30 times more than fatalities in other vehicles and motorcyclists are 5 times more likely to be injured.
There are many myths that surround the increased crash risk that motorcyclists face. Debunking these myths is important to improving motorcycle safety. If drivers of all vehicles on the road have a better understanding of motorcycle driving laws and techniques, we can better share the road and keep everyone safe.
