On the road, motorcycles represent a larger risk to their riders. Despite the fact that motorcycle riders are more likely to be seriously injured in a collision, many drivers do not look out for them as they should, resulting in catastrophic incidents. More than 80% of motorcycle accidents result in death or serious injury, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and motorcyclists are 27 times more likely than passengers in personal vehicles to die in a motorcycle accident. Wearing a helmet reduces the risk of death by about 37%, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
