The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that there are over 7 million motorcycle riders on roadways annually, compared to 130 million passenger cars. With this ratio, the NHTSA has seen a steady increase in motorcycle related accidents. In 2012 over 4,500 motorcyclists were killed and another 82,000 were injured in motorcycle accidents.
Motorcyclists are more susceptible to injury due to the negligence of others. While riding a motorcycle, one must be more aware of their surroundings than those driving cars or trucks. Every car changing lanes, speeding, or applying there brakes abruptly can lead to fatal or serious injures for those on a motorcycle.
