Getting into a motor vehicle accident of any kind is a scary moment in a person's life, and the results could be devastating. But if there is one vehicle out on the road that is more at risk in an accident than any other, it is the motorcycle. With few safety options and a wide open vehicle, it is only natural to expect horrific or even fatal injuries to a motorcyclist if they are involved in a crash.
In 2014, there were 4,594 people who died in motorcycle accidents in the United States. Given that number, you would naturally think that we would improve as a society with another year passing. You would think laws, car technology, and human behavior would lead to improved motorcycle safety in the following year. But unfortunately, you would be wrong. In 2015, there were 4,976 people who died in motorcycle accidents in the United States.
