Motorcycles can be a lot of fun. Not only do they offer a freeing and exhilarating experience on the South Florida roads, they are also much easier to maintain than the larger cars or trucks, and also provide great gas mileage. However, since motorcycles do not have many of the safety features inherent to cars and trucks – such as seat belts and air bags – accidents are much more dangerous and can result in far more serious, long-lasting consequences for motorcycle riders. Around 90,000 motorcyclists get injured yearly in the United States, and motorcycle drivers are 35 times more likely to be involved in a fatal crash than car drivers.
If you enjoy riding your motorcycle, make sure to reduce the risk of serious injuries by avoiding high-risk behavior, obeying all traffic laws, and always wearing all necessary protective gear, including a helmet, a good pair of gloves, high-quality jacket and boots, and a sturdy neck collar. But no matter how careful you are, or how safe your gear, motorcycle accidents can happen, many times due to the negligence of car and truck drivers.
