Riding your motorcycle has many benefits; you feel the breeze against your skin, you get to be closer to the elements, and you spend less on fuel. Unfortunately, as a rider, you have a higher risk of being injured on the road by dangerous and neglectful drivers. As a rider, you have less protection against vehicles, and that can lead to serious, potentially life-threatening injuries if you're hit.
There are several reasons motorcyclists could be struck in the roadway. Motorists sometimes don't give them enough room on the roads, or the vehicles may strike the motorcyclist due to failing to yield to the right of way. Intersection accidents can also happen, some of which could be caused by a failure to see the motorcyclist or failing to judge the correct distance between the driver and motorcyclist.
