How to prevent motorcycle crashes and injuries

A person riding a motorcycle is far more prone to death or injury during a traffic accident than someone driving an automobile. A driver or passenger in a car is protected by the bulk of the vehicle as well as by safety features such as the seat belt and the airbag. The motorcycle rider, on the other hand, has to rely on proper clothing, a well-designed helmet, eye protection and his or her skill. The motorcycle does, however, has a certain amount of agility and maneuverability that can be useful in avoiding a crash.

Fatality rate substantially higher for motorcyclists

As we posted on earlier, preliminary data from the Governors Highway Safety Association was pointing to a 10 percent increase from 2014 to 2015 in the number of motorcyclists killed on U.S. roadways. Missouri was also included in the list of 31 states to see increases in motorcyclist fatalities.

Motorists need to take responsibility to avoid motorcycle crashes

There is nothing quite like the feel of the open road on a motorcycle. Both a form of transportation and enjoyment for many, it is no wonder there are so many riders in the area. However, with the benefits, also come the consequences, as far too many drivers put motorcyclists at risk.
