There are over 127,000 registered motorcycles in the state of Alabama. Each year, motorcycle wrecks make up 11 percent of all automobile accidents in the state, and due to the nature of riding a motorcycle, many of them resulted in crippling injuries and fatalities. Many of these wrecks were the direct result of negligence on behalf of the other driver – resulting in injury or death for hundreds of motorcycle owners.
Motorcyclists are in danger on our streets and highways. They are at the mercy of drivers of cars, trucks, and SUVs, vehicles that are larger and more protected than motorcycles. Couple this exposure with negligence and the end result can be tragedy. Something must be done to protect motorcycle owners from other drivers who text or eat while driving, ignore traffic safety laws, fail to drive responsibly around motorcyclists, drive while intoxicated, or simply drive without consideration for the well-being of others.
