Gas Prices Possible Cause of Increase in Motorcycle Accidents

With prices of gas continually changing, many people are trading in their gas guzzlers for smaller vehicles and motorcycles. With more and more motorcycles on the road, it is unfortunate but inevitable that there would be a higher rate of motorcycle accidents. This increase in motorcycle use also means that there are likely more novice riders on the roads. Not only that, but it means that other motorists will need to become more and more accustomed to sharing the road with motorcycles. It is important to check your blind spot before lane changes as smaller vehicles and motorcycles can be harder to see in the mirrors.

According to experts, experience and speed are major contributing factors to injuries and fatalities associated with motorcycles. Motorcycle safety classes should be an important part of the process when purchasing a motorcycle. It is also important to wear safety gear and take the time to get a motorcycle license.
