    Internet sensation accidents: Biker roulette


    With nothing around them to provide some sort of ‘safety buffer’, bikers are exposed to the risk of far more serious injuries by motorcycling accidents than drivers or passengers inside cars, for example. Sadly, many bikers seem to be prepared to be seriously hurt, even killed by indulging in a new craze known as ‘biker roulette’.

    About the craze

    First documented through videos taken in Russia, but rapidly spreading around the world, biker roulette involves motorcyclists dashing unexpectedly across often busy roads without checking whether anything is coming. Many participants have already been hit by vehicles as a result.

    Potential consequences

    Whether the bikers have a death wish or simply wish to have videos of their exploits go viral on the Internet, the fact is they are taking their lives and those of other road users into their own hands. So far, these crazy motoring accidents have resulted in few injuries. It is, however, only a matter of time before someone gets crippled or killed in one of these unnecessary vehicle collisions.

    Adding speed to lunacy

    It appears those walking away from ‘losing’ biker roulette were fortunate enough to dash out in front of comparatively slow moving vehicles. Had these vehicles been moving faster, it is unlikely these lunatics would have survived these road accidents. A biker roulette accident involving high speeds could also cause more or less serious, even fatal, injuries to drivers and passengers of the four-wheeled vehicles involved.

    Would-be participants

    Traffic accidents already claim far too many victims. Bikers considering participation in this craze should ask themselves whether they really are prepared to die or be responsible for potentially serious personal injuries to other road users just for kicks. The risk of accidents on the road is already high enough, without adding to it by being reckless.

    Victims’ eligibility to claim
