TWO-WHEELED VEHICLES POSE UNIQUE RISKS
While it may be true that every vehicle out on the road is at risk of being in a collision, motorcycles and other two-wheeled bikes have added dangers:
- Maneuvering – motorcycles, mopeds, and scooters are often times much more difficult to drive than other vehicles. They are more susceptible to over and under steering. Sometimes small animals, objects, or even children make their way into the path of a motorcycles. Lastly, at lower speeds, motorcycles are slower at responding to steering inputs and require more balance.
- Multiple Brakes – Most two-wheeled bikes are equipped with a front and back brake. Many times riders forget or don’t have time to use both brakes when attempting to make sudden stops.
- Less Visibility – Motorcycles by nature have less surface area than cars or trucks, making them harder to see.
- Faulty Equipment – When products fail and cause harm on a motorcycle, it can be catastrophic.

MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT RIDERS
There’s a tendency to blame motorcycle and moped riders immediately after an accident. There are classic notions of bikers being reckless and inattentive by nature.
