Motorcycles are a fast and economical way to travel in a busy city or out on the open roads. However, a motorcyclist does not have any protection except for clothing and a helmet. When a traffic collision occurs that involves a motorcycle, the rider is especially susceptible to severe injuries. Because they are not enclosed in metal like a normal vehicle, they do not have the safety of an air bag or seat belt. This can result in catastrophic injuries for a motorcyclist involved in a collision.
