Riding a motorcycle can be an exciting experience. Driven by individuals of all ages from all walks of life, motorcycles allow certain freedoms drivers don’t enjoy with an automobile, providing a unique experience that’s hard to match.
Unfortunately, however, motorcycle accidents are commonplace. Despite the fact that only 3 percent of all vehicles registered in the U.S. are motorcycles, each year, reports by government agencies show that motorcyclists account for some 12-13 percent of all highway fatalities. That’s more than five times higher than the risk to car drivers and automobile occupants.
