Among all motor vehicles, motorcycles are the most vulnerable on the road. Because motorcycles do not have seat belts, you can be thrown off your seat in a motorcycle crash, which can result in serious injury or even death. Often unseen or overlooked by other drivers due to the smaller size of their vehicles, motorcyclists are more likely to be involved in accidents than other drivers. Drivers of cars usually have a difficult time judging the speed of an oncoming motorcycle and thereby underestimate the time of arrival at the intersection.
"I would say in 90 percent of cases we hear the same comment: 'I never saw the motorcycle coming,'" said Sergeant Beam of the Tucson Police Department, "Most people (driving cars) don't understand that a motorcycle is closer than it appears to be. It is a matter of relative size; motorcycles look smaller."
