There is no such thing as a minor motorcycle accident—what might be a “fender bender” for a car could be deadly for a motorcycle rider. Why? Lack of protection. Motorcyclists only have a helmet and the clothes on their backs.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that helmets saved the lives of 1,483 motorcyclists in 2009.
4,462 motorcyclists were killed nationwide.
146 motorcyclists died in North Carolina.
If safety were only a question of skill, most cyclists would be fine. But no matter how capable you are, you can’t control other driver’s actions. When you ride a motorcycle, every other driver on the road is a potential threat to your life.
Motorcycle accidents are complicated, cause serious injuries, and are the result of a number of factors. Unfortunately, motorcyclists are unfairly stereotyped as fast and reckless drivers, but the truth is that most motorcycle wrecks are caused by negligent automobile drivers.
