The dangers of operating a bike are well-documented in our popular culture. Motorcycles do not offer cyclists anywhere near the order of protection as other vehicles. Worse, riders are sometimes overlooked by drivers. In the dreadful event of a motorcycle crash, cyclists are five times more likely to be harmed than drivers. Unbelievably, bikes are an alarming 26 times more likely to suffer fatal injuries.

Drivers are supposed to treat motorcycles as they would other full-sized vehicles on the roadway. Bikers know that this is not always the case. Cars may ignore the needs of motorcycles on the road, leading to unsafe situations. Cars following too closely, ignoring blind spots, or making unsafe lane changes can cause serious bike crashes.
Aggressive drivers could also 'challenge' motorcycles, leading to to dangerous road rage incidents. This is especially true for drivers reacting to the legal maneuver of lane splitting. There is no excuse for a crash to occur because of a larger vehicle challenging a motorcyclist.
