Motorcycle crash 27 times more likely to kill than other crashes

Motorcycle accidents cause fatalities 27 times more frequently than in crashes involving other vehicles. This may come as no surprise to Indiana motorcyclists. Though riding on a motorcycle lets cyclists enjoy the weather to the fullest and get a rush of adrenaline in the process, but there is very little protecting them from the extremities and from the road. The whole frame of the vehicle they are in and equipment inside it, such as seatbelts and airbags, protects motorists. Motorcyclists, on the other hand, only wear a helmet, if that, and knee pads.

So, what type of evidence can be useful?

People get in their vehicles and drive from one location to another without giving a second thought to whether they will indeed make it there safe and sound, seldom considering the possibility of an accident. But, an unexpected accident can take place in the blink of an eye and change the lives of everyone involved.
