Motorcycle drivers and their passengers have a higher risk of serious injury when an accident occurs, as the motorcycle does not provide the same protection as a closed vehicle. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicates that people on a motorcycle are five times more likely to become injured in an accident than those occupying a closed vehicle.
