Motorcycle safety precautions that could reduce injuries

While most Massachusetts motorcycle riders enjoy traveling along the highways and roadways on their bikes, many also know that motorcycles are more dangerous than driving in cars. In fact, motorcycle riders are approximately 30 times more likely to die in a car accident than those who use motor vehicles as their primary mode of transportation. However, there are always certain safety precautions that riders can use to reduce the risk of serious injury or death.

Causes and dangers of motorcycle accidents

Motorcycles can be very dangerous when a rider has limited protection. Helmets can save lives in some situations, but motorcyclists are still reportedly 35 times more likely to perish in a traffic accident than people in cars. Riders without a helmet are 40 percent more likely than ones without to die of a head injury during an accident.

National report shows increased motorcycle fatalities

Massachusetts motorcyclists may be interested in data released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The statistics from a 2012 report show a higher number of motorcycle fatalities and injuries when compared with the previous year.

Working to reduce the number of motorcycle accidents

Improving weather conditions lead to an increase in the number of motorcycles on the roads, and law enforcement agencies are urging both drivers and riders to do their part to keep injuries and fatalities to a minimum. According to the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, 35 people died in motorcycle accidents in 2013, which is a modest improvement over previous years.

Motorcycles can be a gas saving alternative to a full size automobile, but they do not offer the protection that many cars provide to their occupants. Unfortunately, this can mean that individuals that are riding a motorcycle when in an accident can be seriously injured, while those in a vehicle may remain unscathed. One motorcycle accident in Massachusetts recently injured an individual who was on a motorcycle.

Motorcycles can be a great way for an individual to travel from one place to another. They generally use less gasoline than cars do and are enjoyable to ride. However, if a motorcyclist is involved in a car accident with a negligent driver, it can often have detrimental consequences and can result in serious injuries, or worse. Unfortunately, one car accident left a motorcyclist seriously injured recently in Massachusetts.

Several Massachusetts riders injured in motorcycle accidents

Massachusetts motorcycle riders are well aware of the dangers that exist when riding on open roads with other motor vehicles. The negligence of other drivers is very apparent to motorcyclists, and many find it necessary to stay alert and be ready to act in case they are put in harm's way. The lack of protection that motorcyclists have can add even more risk to these dangerous situations, and they can often be seriously injured or even killed.
