Riding a motorcycle has always been regarded as a dangerous pastime. Which is why parents are almost always aghast when their offspring declare they’re buying a motorcycle.
This video perfectly demonstrates why riding a motorcycle is so dangerous. It’s often not the fault of the motorcyclists but the fault of ignorant and/or irresponsible car drivers.
This motorcyclist stops behind a line of traffic as he should do. Unfortunately, the driver behind doesn’t notice, and plows straight into him.
You hear the squeal of the brakes, the motorcyclist looks around, and the next thing you know he’s lying injured on top of the car in front. Scary stuff.
