Motorcycle accidents can lead to devastating and even fatal consequences. Motorcyclists are often put at a higher risk of accidents in comparison with passengers of private vehicles. According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics, motorcycle riders have 16 times the risk of injury and 35 times the risk of a fatal crash in comparison to car passengers. To avoid sustaining life-threatening injuries after an accident, motorcyclists are urged to wear helmets and the necessary protective gear every time they ride their motorcycle. Wearing helmets were estimated to be 37% effective in preventing motorcycle deaths.
