The National Highway Traffic Safety Association has recorded 346 fatalities related to motorcycle accidents in the state of Texas alone, but a more alarming report was released by the Texas Transportation Institute, which uncovered the fact that accidents involving motorcycles was the only category that increased in the driving fatalities and accidents of the state.

The state of Texas has the largest number of bikers in the country and yet they face discrimination each time they ride their motorcycles. In general, bike enthusiasts are often associated with crude behavior and recklessness. They are often considered as the kind of folks who like playing with fire and when they get involved in motorcycle accidents that often result to serious injuries; the general attitude is usually, it is just right for them. This and other negative attitudes towards bikers are all based on the stereotype but outdated image of motorcycle riders and enthusiasts.

The fact is that motorcycle riders are just as courteous and careful as people who drive motor vehicles. The problem is, although bike riders usually follow the same road rules as other drivers, they have a particular set of problems whenever they drive on roadways. Oncoming bikes for instance might not be noticed by a driver who might be distracted, inattentive or drunk. Because motorcycles are light, small and have no protection to offer to its rider, motorcycle accidents usually result to serious and life threatening physical injuries such as fractures, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, brain injuries, road rash, internal injuries or even death. In many incidents, the motorcycle riders are not to blame but they are the ones who pay the price for the negligence of another driver.
