Motorcycle deaths and injuries are far too common

Tennesseans may be thinking that, with cooler weather on the way, most motorcyclists are putting their bikes away. But that isn't true.

Reducing motorcycle unawareness is vital, as last year saw more than 2,800 motorcycle crashes with 135 fatalities resulting from those wrecks. Already this year, Tennessee has had 337 motorcycle accidents with 14 deaths.

This means there will be more bicyclists, pedestrians and motorcyclists on or near the roadways.

For many Tennessee residents riding a motorcycle is a relaxing way to spend an afternoon. For others it may be their only form of transportation. Either way, these motorcyclists are less protected than those riding in enclosed vehicles. A motorcyclist does not have a seat belt, air bags, or surrounding metal to protect him in the event of an accident. For this reason, it is extremely important other drivers exercise motorcycle awareness. A failure to do so may be a deadly mistake.
