Sharing the Road: Motorcycles, Mopeds and Bicycles

Nevada Insurance Enrollment Explains Essential Safety Tips for Sharing the Road with Motorcycles, Mopeds and Bicycles

LAS VEGAS - nvtip -- Motorcycles, mopeds and bicycles may account for a relatively small percentage of vehicles on the road, but they are consistently overrepresented in fatal traffic accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, per vehicle miles traveled, those operating motorcycles are 29 times more likely to die in a crash than those riding in passenger cars.

Weather conditions, user error or impairment and being unable to predict what another driver will do can all contribute to traffic accidents and fatalities. When it comes to sharing the road, it is important to take special precautions to keep everyone safe.
