Because they travel at such high speeds so close to the pavement with so little padding, motorcycle riders are at a particularly heightened risk in traffic. Based on numbers reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a motorcyclist is about 16 times more likely to die in a collision with another vehicle than are the people in the car .
Almost 2,000 people are killed in motorcycle accidents every year in the U.S., while another 50,000 are injured.
