Motorcycle riders rarely receive their fair share of the road. It is an unfortunate reality that most drivers fail to notice motorcycle riders at all until it is too late. Even when they do take notice of a motorcycle rider, many drivers fail to adequately assess what is a safe amount of space between the two vehicles and accidents happen.
In addition to this lack of notice and respect, motorcycle riders also face greater risks on the road because motorcycles simply do not offer the same level of protection as a car or truck. Apart from having several thousand pounds of steel acting as a cage, most cars and trucks today come with numerous additional safety features such as air bags, anti-lock brakes and stability control.
Motorcycle riders are exposed to the direct impact of the road, other vehicles and roadside objects such as trees and telephone poles when accidents occur. Common injuries motorcycle riders suffer include:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord injury (paraplegia, quadriplegia, partial paralysis)
- Broken bones/fractures
- Road rash
- Internal injuries/damage to organs
