Motorcyclists are incredibly vulnerable to accidents and injuries. Motorcycles are not equipped with seat belts or air bags. The lack of seat belts increases motorcyclists’ risk of being ejected from the motorcycle. Air bags are designed to prevent injury and cushion impact, in the case of an accident. A motorcyclist’s only protection is a helmet and some body gear. This is why every motorcyclist must wear a helmet. A helmet can save a motorcyclist’s life.

Protective body gear is also very important. Motorcyclists should invest in brightly colored protective gear. The bright colors make motorcyclists more visible. Motorists are less likely to hit a visible motorcyclist.
