However, because motorcycles are smaller and lighter than other vehicles on the road, they are less visible to other drivers. As a result, even motorcyclists who follow traffic laws carefully are more vulnerable to hazards and injuries than people in cars and trucks. When crashes occur, motorcyclists are likely to suffer the brunt of the injuries.
