When you are traveling by motorbike you have a statistically higher probability of being involved in an accident that a car driver, this is in fact as large as 50% higher. Motorcycle accidents tend to result in more serious injuries because a bike provides very little protection to its rider, and during a collision the rider will more than likely be thrown from the bike. Many accidents can be blamed on another driver’s lack of attention or failure to respect the motorbike rider’s right of way on the road, and are therefore avoidable with a little care on the part of other road users. Motorcycles only make up about 2% of registered vehicles, but surprisingly, account for a disproportionate 9% of traffic fatalities.
