Motorcycles offer an alternative to automobiles when comparing the cost to a car. They are often cost-effective when compared to a car due to needing less fuel and less maintenance. Motorcycles are easier to navigate around a city, as the buildup of cars can make streets compact and unmanageable. Also, motorcycles have to be maintained closer than cars so drivers of motorcycles must always be looking at what is in front of them as well as around them.
Unfortunately, motorcycles share the road with fellow drivers and accidents do occur.
MOTORCYCLES ON THE ROAD
Motorcycles are fairly smaller than a car, which gives them the ability to park in smaller spaces and use fewer resources. This smaller frame does make it harder for larger cars and trucks to see motorcyclists while on the road. Due to the advancement of technology, many people are using cellphones while driving and do not pay attention to their surroundings. This causes cars and trucks to not properly watch out for motorcycles and causes accidents.
Due to a motorcycle’s design, a driver of a motorcycle is not protected from all sides like a car. Motorcycles only have frontal airbags, unlike a car which has multiple airbags. According to the National Safety and Transportation Board, since motorcycles afford riders less protection, the likelihood of injuries and fatalities in a crash is much greater.
Common injuries caused by motorcycle accidents include:
- Neck injury
- Spinal injury
- Head and brain injury
- Shoulder Injury
- Broken bones
