Motorcycle riders are frequently the victims of careless and inattentive drivers of cars and trucks. Whether the carelessness is caused by a drunk driver, or the all too frequent indifference that motorists exhibit towards motorcyclists, the results of a collision with a motorcycle are all too often catastrophic or fatal.
The major cause remains the failure of other drivers to recognize motorcyclists.
