Milan motorcycle crash leaves a tragic legacy
Motorcycle collisions can have dire consequences due to their unavoidable dangers. For starters, motorcycles lack protective features such as metal frames and airbags. As a result, riders are more likely to suffer serious injuries when they crash. Furthermore, motorcyclists are vulnerable to the elements, which puts them at risk for hypothermia, dehydration, or heatstroke.
Motorcycles can also crash because of high speeds, maneuverability issues, and lack of visibility. Considering these factors, riders should take extra precautions, including wearing protective gear and obeying traffic laws, to minimize the risk of injury or death in an accident.
