It’s no secret how much Texans love their motorcycles. Although they’re great, motorcycle accidents are a prevalent problem in Texas, resulting in hundreds of injuries and deaths each year. According to data collected from state licensing bureaus across the U.S., Texas had the third-highest number of registered motorcycles.
Motorcycles are less stable and less visible than cars, and when operators of the motorcycles do crash, they’re more likely to be seriously injured or killed due to the lack of protection of an enclosed vehicle, plus the difference in weight and size of the vehicles put the motorcyclist at a disadvantage. The average motorcycle weighs 700 pounds while the average weight of a car is 4000 pounds, 8500 pounds for an SUV, 7500 pounds for a truck, and 85,000 pounds for an 18-wheeler.
