Did you know that more than 80% of all reported motorcycle crashes result in the injury or death of the motorcyclist? That equates to four times more than if you are in an automobile accident. While these numbers indicated the United States and provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Canada sees its fair share of motorcycle accidents as well.
The truth is that it doesn’t matter where you live – motorcycles are not the same as driving or riding in an automobile. The safety features that come standard in cars are not found on motorcycles – sorry, no side airbags or seatbelts.
Just remember that safety and motorcycles are not something that should be taken lightly.
