Motorcycle accidents can be fatal, especially if the vehicle operator is not following standard safety procedures (wearing a helmet, obeying speed limits, avoiding blind spots, etc.).

There are also some interesting statistics involving motorcycle accidents that every biker should be aware of (courtesy of NHTSA):

50%: Percentage of motorcycle crashes that involve alcohol
50%: Percentage of single-vehicle fatalities involving no other vehicles
44%: Percentage of all motorcycle accidents that happen on weekends
26%: Percentage of riders in fatal crashes that did not have a valid license

So, before you hop on your motorcycle, make sure you do a thorough pre-ride inspection, make sure you are wearing head, eye and skin protection, and never tailgate another driver while riding. Also, avoid riding next to a truck – you’ll be in the blind spot of the driver.
