The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that over 4,000 motorcyclists are killed every year in traffic accidents. Given the lack of protection that motorcycles offer in comparison to passenger cars and trucks, it is not surprising that this number, when adjusted to account for total vehicle miles traveled makes it many times more likely that a motorcyclist will be involved in a fatal accident than an occupant of a car. With this in mind, it is extremely important, when riding, to practice defensive driving and be aware of your surroundings at all times. However, you can never control the actions of the other drivers with whom you share the road.
