Motorcycle Accidents

 

 

Motorcyclists experience a death rate 35 times greater than the occupants of cars; most of the injuries are to the head and the use of helmets reduces the risk of fatal head injury about one third, and the risk of facial injury by two thirds. Fractures of the lower extremities are also common in motorcyclists, occurring in approximately 40% of motorcyclists hospitalized for non-fatal injuries.
Because of their small size and fast acceleration rate, motorcycles are often not seen in time by drivers of larger vehicles. This puts the motorcycle rider at risk. More than 30% of motor vehicle/motorcycle collisions occur at intersections because the driver did not see the motorcyclist in time. Learning how to be seen is one of the most important skills motorcycle riders need to have.
