Motorcycle awareness and safety must be priorities this summer

Over the past year, motorcycle registrations have increased across the country. These open vehicles are very popular; however, they are also fairly dangerous since there is no metal frame protecting you if you get into a collision. With the increase in the number of motorcycles on the roads, all drivers have to be vigilant to keep motorcyclists safe.

If you look at a mile-per-mile comparison of cars versus motorcycles, you will see that motorcyclists die at a rate that is 29 times higher than that of vehicle occupants, according to a federal government estimate posted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). This harrowing statistic should be enough to spur most people to take proactive stances toward motorcycle safety.

With the summer months in full swing, motorcyclists are out in force. From single riders enjoying the open road to groups of motorcyclists participating in charity rides, you are likely going to see plenty of motorcyclists on the highway.

Motorcyclists who get injured in accidents have the option of seeking compensation when other drivers' actions or negligence caused their wrecks and subsequent injuries. Financial compensation can ease some of the psychological and financial damages for the injured bikers, as they won't have to worry over how to pay the medical bills while they are trying to recuperate.

Everyone has to help to keep motorcyclists safe. The small profile of these two-wheeled cycles means that they can be easily overlooked. Taking a few extra seconds to thoroughly check the road before merging and entering intersections can allow motorcyclists to arrive safely at their destinations.
