Respecting each motorist's right of way is essential to help assure accident prevention. Not following traffic regulations and being unaware of other vehicles are sure fire ways of endangering lives. This is especially true for motorcycle riders. In a motorcycle accident, riders can suffer catastrophic injuries, like neck and brain injuries, that can result in permanent disability. The likelihood of death in these cases can be very high as well. This was apparent in a recent accident south of Tampa.
Motorcycles may be a favorite way to travel for many Floridians, but almost all of them can tell stories about close calls that could have ended their lives or certainly put them into a hospital with severe injuries. Unfortunately, these vehicles do not offer the same protection as cars and other motor vehicles do, so riders generally fare poorly in the typical motorcycle accident.
