A crash by a motorcycle rider is called motorbike accidents. From surveys it has been established that they are more fatal in comparison to the automobile. The registering of bikes has been increasing notably in the last years. It is explained that fatality is higher due to the minimized protection of riders on bikes.
A bike accident may involve a vehicle carrying passengers, pedestrian, immobile objects by the roadside, a traffic rule violation or involvement in drug abuse or alcohol use. Bikes do not offer any protection to those riding it so it is of importance that they acquire protection gear to reduce the exposure to injuries. They are also not as conspicuous as other cars.
A rider is given the advice to increase their conspicuity. This is possible by dressing in highly visible clothing or helmets of light color. Use of headlights even at daytime will increase their visibility too. This does not make a biker totally safe but is only measures taken for prevention in reducing crashes.
Some people advocate for motorcycling to be banned since it is dangerous. Some are of the opinion that rider self discipline will make is safer. With all measures in place the risk still remains and avoiding it completely is impossible.
Injuries which could be got are a lot. Brain concussion could occur but it may is greatly reduced by wearing helmets. Joints could break for example shoulder or wrist joints. Wearing of protective clothing could reduce soft tissue damage which is another injury risk. Facial damage and paralysis of the arm are other possibilities.
To control and reduce how fatal an accident may be protective apparel should be used to the maximum. They make one more visible. They also reduce the level of abrasion during a crash. There are apparel that have padding to reduce the impact on certain parts of the body. They are also protective in times of harsh conditions of the weather.
