The Risks of Riding a Motorcycle
Motorcycle accidents are prone to be severe because riders lack the stability cars normally offer. Moreover, a motorcyclist is more vulnerable to road hazards, weather conditions, and is less visible to other drivers.
Always be alert and focused on the road. Do not use smartphones or other unnecessary devices. Most especially, abide by posted speed limits while on busy boulevards.
If you see yourself unfit to drive in a moment, use a rideshare app instead.
According to the Association of Safe International Road Travel, more than half of all road occur among vulnerable road users—pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists.
Thus, it is valuable to know what to do if you get involved in a motor vehicle accident
