To protect riders, California made it illegal for cars to open their doors when in traffic, except for in an emergency situation. Lane sharing, where two motorcycles ride next to each other in a single lane, is also legal. But despite the state’s protection, there is a definite bias against motorcycle riders. Bikers know that insurance premiums tend to be much higher for motorcycle owners than for car owners. On top of this, there is a tendency to look at riders as daredevils who drive recklessly and put themselves and others at risk – and to assume they’re guilty after an accident. In fact, most bikers are conscientious and practice defensive driving, because they understand better than anyone else the risks of being in a collision. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2006, 13.10 cars out of 100,000 suffered fatal crashes. The rate for motorcycles was 72.34 out of 100,000. In fact, motorcycles are 35 times more likely to have a fatal crash than a passenger car. The increased risk stems from the fact that motorcycles do not offer the same protection as cars, with their steel and aluminum frames. But another significant factor is that motorcycles are less visible on the road, often getting lost in blind spots on highways, and getting cut off more frequently at intersections. Automobile drivers must pay extra attention to safety when they see a motorcycle, but unfortunately, this is not always the case. When riders are involved in accidents, they are extremely vulnerable to severe injuries. This can include one or all of the following:
- Road rash
- Broken bones
- Spinal injury
- Traumatic brain injuries
