While there are no mountains or oceans to drive a motorcycle around, Michigan has its own fair share of beautiful landscapes to operate your motorcycle near. Whether you want to head to the Michigan dunes or drive around the many lakes in the area, driving a motorcycle on a beautiful sunny day with the wind whipping through your hair can be the most relaxing activity for motorcyclists. However, it can take a turn for the worst when reckless drivers are on the road.
Motorcycle accidents are unfortunately relatively common on the road because people are not paying attention to what they are doing while driving. Motorcycle accidents are much more likely to be fatal in comparison to a car accident. Additionally, those who are older and ride motorcycles will have much more serious injuries compared to younger riders. In the most current data, there are on average 92,000 injuries and 4,295 deaths due to riding a motorcycle.
Many drivers become easily distracted by unruly children, text messages, social media, eating, music, drinking, putting on makeup, and talking on the phone. Even if there’s not an obvious distraction, drivers aren’t always paying attention to what’s going on around them. Due to negligent driving, it can be easy for a motorcycle accident to occur. If you’re a motorcycle driver, you need to be much more careful because these large cars can easily harm you.
