Motorcycles can be some of the most liberating driving experiences that someone will ever enjoy. There is an unparalleled feeling of freedom and excitement that comes with driving a motorcycle; however, motorcycles can also be some of the most dangerous ways to travel. Due to the fact that motorcycles are driven on two wheels, and provide no overhead protection, motorcycles will never be as safe or protective as a four -wheeled vehicle.
In an accident while in a car, the driver and passengers are protected by seatbelts, air bags, and other safety precautions. The driver of a motorcycle has no such protection; they are left to the mercy of the other drivers on the road, their own skill and luck. When an accident occurs that involves a motorcycle, the injuries sustained are often catastrophic, especially at higher speeds. Because of the size and weight of a motorcycle, it is easily destroyed by a large vehicle or truck that is traveling at a high speed. The driver of the motorcycle could end up in the hospital with broken bones, road rashes, and other severe injuries.
