Studies show that 46 percent of all motorcycle crashes happen at intersections.  In fact, motorcycle fatalities accounted for 14 percent of all traffic fatalities, 16 percent of occupant fatalities, and 4 percent occupant injuries in the year 2010.  For each vehicle mile traveled, motorcycles are approximately 30 times more likely to die in a traffic crash than passenger car occupants.  Motorcycles can be enjoyable to ride, and an escape from the every day confines of the car. However, it’s no mystery that there is a lot less between the motorcyclist and the pavement.  That’s why raising awareness and practicing extra vigilance around motorcycles is a significant concern for today’s transportation environment.  If your planning a ride give your bike a once over and be sure that all lights, brakes, and signals are in working order.  Be sure to check all oil and fuel levels.  Position all mirrors correctly.  Check the chain to see if it needs any lube or adjustments.  Most importantly, be sure that you are wearing protective gear including a high-quality, well-fitting helmut, leather jacket and pants, non-slip gloves, and boots or sneakers that cover the entire foot and ankle.
