About Motorcycle Accidents
Some motorcycle riders have loved motorcycles since they were children and could not imagine any other way of travelling around. Others use motorcycles for convenience as they are the fastest way of getting around roads congested with traffic. Motorcyclists also feel that riding their motorcycle is more exciting and exhilarating than driving a car so motorcycles and mopeds are becoming more and more popular.
As mentioned above, there are many positive points to being a motorcycle rider; however, there are many negative points too. Motorcycles represent approximately only 1% of the traffic on our roads in the UK but they account for 18% of all deaths and serious injuries. Motorcyclists are 40 times more likely to be killed in an accident than a car driver.
