The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that there are over seven 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 its brakes abruptly can lead to fatal or serious injures for those on a motorcycle.
