Adrenaline and Accidents

There are two types of motorcycle riders—those who have crashed and those who haven’t—yet. The joys of riding a motorcycle comes with a price. Compared to car passengers, motorcyclists are 35 times more likely to be involved in a fatal accident. Helmets can prevent a deadly injury, but serious damage is almost guaranteed when another car causes you to hit the pavement at 50 miles per hour. In recent years, more than half of motorcycle-related deaths involved another vehicle.
