It is no secret that motorcycles can be very dangerous for their operators no matter how hard you try to drive one safely. In fact, there were more than 4,000 motorcycle crashes reported to police in New York in 2014 alone. Injuries are usually the result of direct impact between the driver and the other vehicle or pavement because it is not an enclosed vehicle equipped with safety measures in case of an accident. Due in part to their small and quick nature, motorcycles are also often less visible on roadways, especially during poor weather. They are generally less stable than a regular automobile, too. However, regardless of the myriad of reasons that motorcycles can be dangerous, motorcyclists have the right to travel the streets safely and without being injured by other traffic, though the laws governing motorcycles and other vehicles are different.
