Motorcycles are smaller and less visible than cars and trucks. This simple comparison explains why riding a motorcycle is riskier than driving a car or any enclosed vehicle. Recent statistics posted an average of 480 motorcyclists killed yearly in California.
According to authorities, the primary factors contributing to motorcycle accidents are unsafe speed, alcohol or drug use, improper turning, riding on the wrong side of the road, and failing to yield.
