Motorcyclists are much more vulnerable to serious injury or death in accidents than people in cars and trucks. With far less inherent protection than a car, any accident on a motorcycle has the potential to cause catastrophic injury. While the number of motorcyclists killed in traffic accidents is far lower than the number of people in cars, it represents a much higher percentage of motorcyclists by highway miles driven. The fact is that motorcycles present much more of an inherent risk to their drivers than cars and trucks. That said, everyone who chooses to should be able to enjoy the freedom that they provide.
