Not a Biker? Why You Still Need to Care About Motorcycle Safety on Missouri Highways

You may have never ridden a motorcycle and you may have no interest in ever getting on one any time soon. Nobody you love rides a bike. The world of motorcycling may seem foreign and generally unimportant in your life.

But It’s Not—Motorcycle Safety IS Important to You

Even if you don’t drive a motorcycle, you likely drive a car or truck on Missouri highways. Thus, you are often sharing the road with motorcyclists. If you are not careful, you could end up in an accident with a biker that could change your whole life.

Here are some of the ways in which a Missouri motorcycle crash could change the life of a car or truck driver:

  • Physical harm – It isn’t only the motorcyclist who may be injured in a crash. The impact could cause you physical injury as well.
  • Emotional harm – You may feel horrible if a motorcyclist is injured, or worse dies, from injuries sustained in an accident with you.
  • Financial harm – Medical expenses, vehicle repair, and/or insurance costs can have a significant impact on your finances.

These consequences may be avoidable. The best way to avoid these types of harm is to learn about motorcycle safety and to avoid motorcycle accidents. However, if that’s not possible then it is also important to know what to do after a crash.

What All Drivers Should Know After a Motorcycle Wreck
