As gas prices continue to rise many people are turning to motorbikes as a more fuel efficient and economic mode of transport. They are more environmental friendly, and many think they are an exciting way to get around. However there is nothing between you and the road, or other vehicles, except some protective clothing and a crash helmet.

For this reason motorcycle accidents can quite easily lead to very serious consequences. No matter what protective gear you wear if you are hit by a car or truck you will be given little protection against broken bones, soft tissue damage, spinal cord injury, and often death.

A motorcycle is not as easy to see as a car or truck, and for this reason one of the frequent causes of an accident is often that the other driver just didn’t see the motorcycle and rider. If you are a bike rider you should make sure you do everything you can to make you as visible as possible. Use your headlights, and wear reflective strips on clothing and your helmet, and drive defensively. Assume the car at the intersection hasn’t seen you, and be prepared to take evasive action.

Motorcycle accidents injuries are so devastating because the rider has little protecting them from the road surface and the other vehicle. Car drivers have seat belts, airbags, and safety cells, to protect them. This is the reason why fatalities are 35 times higher when involved in a crash on a motorbike than in a car. Broken bones, brain injuries, loss of limbs, paralysis and even death are all common results of a motorcycle accident.
