The grim statistics about motorcycle accidents
As a group, motorcyclists are responsible, law-abiding people. Most of them have taken motorcycle safety classes, wear a helmet when riding, and obey the rules of the road.
Unfortunately, even the most conscientious cyclists can find themselves falling victim to circumstances outside their control. In fact, statistics show that motorcycle riders are four times more likely than car owners to suffer an injury and 16 times more likely to be killed in a traffic accident.
What are some of the most common causes?
- Careless motorists: Accidents in which the motorist moves into the bike rider’s lane, strikes the motorcycle from behind, or executes a turn directly in front of the cyclist happen every day across the country.
- Poor road conditions: Highway departments are responsible for maintaining our public roads in good condition. They endanger all of us when hazards such as potholes, loose gravel, and deteriorating asphalt persist and are not fixed.
- Manufacturer defects: All in all, bike manufacturers do a pretty good job of building safe, reliable products. Sometimes, however, serious flaws escape detection until it’s too late to prevent accidents.
- Inadequate maintenance: Today’s motorcycles are far more complex than those built just a few years ago. Most models require regular maintenance from a trained motorcycle mechanic. But even the best technicians sometimes get in a hurry and overlook important safeguards, leaving the motorcycle’s owner to pay the price.
