Riding a motorcycle can be a very exhilarating and exciting experience. However, the dangers inherent with this mode of transportation can be significantly greater than automobiles and other forms of transportation. Motorcycle collisions can be devastating and can result in substantial and serious injuries.  A study by the National Highway Transportation Safety Authority found that motorcycles made up approximately 3 percent of all registered vehicles in the United States, yet only accounted for .7 percent of all vehicle miles traveled. However, the fatality rate was 6 times higher for motorcyclists compared to passenger car occupants. Putting the dangers faced by motorcyclists in stark perspective, the study found that per vehicle miles traveled, motorcycle fatalities occurred 27 times more often than passenger car occupant fatalities in motor vehicle accidents and that motorcyclists were nearly 5 times more likely to be injured than passenger car occupants.
