Commuting by Motorcycle
Although they are not as popular for daily commutes as passenger vehicles, many people ride motorcycles to work year round. According to recent statistics, of the almost 129.2 million Americans who commute to work every day, only 147,703 of them ride motorcycles. This is roughly 0.11 percent of all commuters. Although there are many benefits to commuting by motorcycle, there are many significant problems and risks a rider may face on a daily basis.
If you or a loved one has been injured while riding a motorcycle because of the actions of a negligent motorist, you may be eligible for financial compensation.

Possible Commuting Problems
One potential problem associated with riding a motorcycle to work is dealing with rush hour traffic to and from the office. With an overload of cars and other vehicles on the road at these times of day, there is an increased risk of an accident occurring.
Additionally, many vehicles may not see a motorcyclist because of the smaller size of these vehicles. Especially during morning commutes, where people may be distracted by eating breakfast, drinking coffee, or getting ready for work, they may fail to exercise caution and check for motorcycles around them.
