Being on a motorcycle can be risky, especially since motorcyclists are faced with the same dangers as other motorists, in addition to motorcycle-specific dangers. The same dangers faced by all those on the roadways include dangers presented by distracted drivers and those who are otherwise negligent.

Such accidents can sometimes have fatal results. This is one of the many reasons why it is very important for motor vehicle drivers to avoid drunk driving or other negligent conduct that could cause auto accidents to occur.
