Bikers are attracted to motorcycles because they are a unique form of transportation.
They offer an unparalleled sense of freedom and power on the road, but they also expose bikers to more danger than an ordinary automobile.
In 2005, 61 people lost their lives in Alabama motorcycle accidents. In 2008, there were 5,290 motorcycle fatalities in the United States, accounting for 14% of the total crash fatalities. In fact, bikers are 37 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a crash and 9 times more likely to be injured than passenger car occupants. Even non-fatal Alabama motorcycle accidents can result brain injury, spine injuries, broken bones, road rash, burns, scars, and other serious or permanent injuries.
