There is no question that motorcyclists are not offered the same protections as vehicle occupants. Motorcyclists are exposed to the open road and other motor vehicles without the added protection of vehicle walls, a seat belt, and airbags. In the event of a collision, motorcyclists often suffer devastating and life-altering injuries.
Of all types of vehicle accidents, those involving motorcycles are often among the most severe. Whether a motorcycle is used for its low cost of personal transportation or as a recreation vehicle, the pose an incredible risk to the driver. A motorcyclist has very little protection if involved in a collision with a drunk driver or distracted motorist compared to a driver in a passenger vehicle or commercial truck, and they are much more vulnerable to receiving catastrophic injuries.
