Cars vs Motorcycles

With a 92% increase in motorcycle-related fatalities in less than a decade, many people have begun to wonder what can be done to reduce the safety risks involved in motorcycle riding.

And though only 1 in 5 car drivers dies in an accident, nearly 4 in 5 motorcyclists do; what factors are at play, keeping car drivers safe? ¬†This infographic will show you the safety concerns of motorcyclists, and share tips on your safety.

    I LIVE IN SAN DIEGO, CA. I DRIVE ABOUT 15 MILES TO WORK EVERYDAY. EVERYDAY THEIR IS AT LEAST 3 MOTORCYCLES ACCIDENT. THEY GO IN AND OUT OF TRAFFIC, OR DRIVE LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL. ONE MORNING ONE DRIVER DROVE SO BAD I COULDN’T CATCH UP WITH HIM TO CALL 911. IT’S LIKE THEY HAVE A DEATH WISH. WHEN THEY DRIVE BETWEEN CAR’S THEY GET IN YOUR BLIND SITE AND I THINK THAT IS ALOT OF THE ACCIDENT’S.

    Most motorcycle deaths could be easily prevented just by having drivers license tests — for both cars AND motorcycle — actually be difficult and demanding. Right now, it’s practically impossible for someone with the slightest brain power to fail their drivers/riders test, even if they have no skill at all.

    Car riders should need 15+ hours in a simulator plus driving instruction class. Motorcyclists (because they present much less of a menace to anyone but themselves) should be required to take a safety class and have a provisional license for the first 1000 miles, during which time they must be ticket and at-fault accident free (tickets during this period are triple, with an option to spend a night in jail instead).

    Driver deaths would plummet. Accidents would plummet. Traffic would improve dramatically.

    None of this will happen, because car and insurance companies have powerful lobbyists (and therefore Washington) working for them.
