Unfortunately though motorcycle riders are more likely to suffer serious injuries when involved in a road traffic accident. Many drivers forget to check their mirrors and blind spot, hence one of the most common excuses other drivers will use when involved in an accident with a motorcycle will be that they did not see the motorcycle. Bigger vehicles such as cars and lorries will often also think they have priority on the road, neglecting the safety of motorcyclists.
