Riding a motorcycle has its perks, including good gas mileage and the feeling of freedom as you cruise down the highway. But there are also significant risks that motorcyclists face. Among the most serious hazards motorcyclists face are negligent and inattentive drivers.
Here in California, good weather allows riders to use their motorcycles at all times of year. Because of this, it would be logical to conclude that drivers of cars and trucks would be used to seeing and sharing the road with motorcyclists. Unfortunately, this isn't the case. Drivers often end up causing serious accidents because they fail to notice a motorcyclist or misjudge his speed and proximity.
