This unfortunate incident highlights the dangers that motorcyclists face on the road every day. Motorcyclists are much more vulnerable to injury in accidents than drivers of other vehicles due to their lack of protection. It is important for drivers to be aware of their surroundings and share the road with motorcyclists.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcycle accidents account for a disproportionate amount of fatalities on the roadways. In fact, the NHTSA reports that motorcyclists are 27 times more likely to be killed in an accident than occupants of passenger cars.
