It is clear to the naked eye that motorcycles do not provide the same level of physical protection that cars and trucks provide. Obviously, a motorcyclist is more exposed physically than a driver enclosed in a car or truck. This means that in the event of an accident, there is a greater risk of injury for a motorcyclist.
Dallas motorcyclists, of course, do not try to get into accidents. There are ways to prevent potentially fatal motorcycle crashes and other collisions. One such way may be via lane splitting, as this blog reported in a previous post.
Motorcyclists undoubtedly do everything they can to keep themselves safe on the roads, but unfortunately, they may often encounter other negligent drivers who are not so cautious. It is here where the real risk lies, as a failure to yield by another driver or a distracted automobile driver could lead to broken bones or permanent disability for a motorcycle driver.
