The smaller size and vulnerability of motorcycle riders and passengers make the risk of serious injury and death to those involved in a collision between an automobile and a motorcycle even higher. As many as 80% of reported motorcycle accidents result in death or injury, highlighting the dangers associated with motorcycle accidents.
Many motorcyclists who are injured or killed in such accidents are ejected from the motorcycle, resulting in injuries stemmed from impact as well as lacking protection.
