Ohio is one of the top 10 states for motorcycle owners. But they are not without risk. According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, thousands of motorcycle accidents occur every year, resulting in over 100 deaths.
Many factors can cause motorcycle accidents. For example, inclement weather, poor road conditions, and driver negligence are some of the leading causes.
Motorcycles are far smaller than other vehicles. This means they are harder to see. Many motorcycle accidents happen because a car fails to see a motorcyclist before turning or changing lanes.
One of the best things you can do to avoid severe injury is to wear a helmet. Although not required by law for most riders, the National Highway Traffic Safety shows that riders who wear helmets are far less likely to die or sustain a traumatic head injury than riders who do not wear a helmet.
Tips to decrease the likelihood of a motorcycle accident:
Riding a motorcycle can be exciting, but it can also be dangerous. Accidents involving motorcycles are frequent because motorcycles are often not seen by other drivers, especially if a driver is distracted, under the influence, or tired.
In addition, motorcyclists are less protected than those riding in cars.
