Statistics reveal that motorcycle drivers and passengers suffer serious injury in four out of five motorcycle accidents. Despite the stereotype, a majority of motorcycle crashes are not caused by speeding, drinking, or other illegal activity. The number one cause of a motorcycle accident is when the driver of a car, truck, SUV or semi-truck pulls out into an intersection or turns left into the motorcyclist’s right of way.
