Motorcycle accidents are often quite severe. The rate of fatal crashes in motorcycle accidents is much higher than the rate of fatal crashes in car accidents. Motorcyclists also have a higher risk of severe injuries. There is a higher risk of injury and accidents because motorcyclists are less protected than car occupants.
In the event of a collision, the car’s structure is designed to absorb most of the force. Motorcyclists have little protective structure. A smart motorcyclist will wear a helmet and additional protective body gear, but this protective gear is little protection against another speeding vehicle.
Protective gear is the only protection motorcyclists have on the road. It is important for every motorcyclist to wear protective gear. The helmet is most important component of a motorcyclist’s protective gear. The helmet needs to be properly fitted and comfortable. Motorcyclists should invest in protective eye gear. Eye gear improves visibility and prevents debris from flying into your eyes. Body gear is also important. A protective jacket and pants can minimize cuts and certain injuries.
It is especially important for motorcyclists to ride carefully. Motorcyclists are often in drivers’ blind spots. While on the road, motorcyclists should pay special attention to reckless and speeding drivers. Motorcyclists are subjective to all the same rules of the road that drivers most follow. It is important that motorcyclists follow these rules for their own safety on the road.
