Driving a motorcycle offers various benefits, such as excellent gas mileage and the ability to maneuver easily through traffic. These benefits do not come without risks, however. Motorcycle drivers have a 35 times higher chance of being involved in a fatal crash than those driving cars.
Some of the most alarming statistics for motorcycle drivers show that most multiple vehicle fatal crashes that occur between cars and motorcycles involve the driver of the car not noticing the motorcycle at all or until it is too late to avoid a collision. Thus, it may not be how well you operate your motorcycle that affects an accident, but simply the inability of other drivers to see or notice a motorcycle on the road.
