Whatever the reason that a person takes to riding a motorcycle, it probably isn't because they're looking to experience a catastrophic injury from a motorcycle accident.

But many of these accidents could be prevented if the people in the cars and trucks would be more attentive and cautious when they are driving near motorcycles.
