Motorcycle accidents are much more dangerous than car accidents. Statistically, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that motorcyclists in a wreck are 32 times more likely to die than a car occupant and the motorcyclist is six times more likely to be injured. Unfortunately, motorcyclists are often stereotyped as being dangerous and the cause of most motorcycle accidents. In fact, it is usually the car driver who causes the accident because he or she did not see the motorcycle in time to avoid an accident or simply did not see the motorcycle at all. Despite these facts, many people continue to think of all accidents as the motorcyclist’s fault.
