Lane-splitting… Who would have thought that just one word can trigger millions of car drivers in California?

A motorcycle rider is more likely to sustain a serious injury or die on the road than someone riding in a passenger car. That’s a fact. Car drivers and passengers are protected from the force of the crash by extra layers of hard metal, while the bodies of motorcycle riders are fully exposed to the […]

New statistics showed that motorcycle accident fatalities in California decreased by around 30 percent in the period between 2016 and 2017. The sharp decrease in deaths on the roads of California is especially remarkable considering that the nationwide decrease in that period was only 5.6 percent. In fact, only Wyoming, Mississippi, Delaware, and the District […]

Whenever we see a motorcyclist on the streets of Los Angeles, a lot of us tend to think, “Oh, look. He is on a suicide mission.” Up to 5,000 motorcyclists are killed in motorcycle accidents in the U.S. every year. And motorcycle fatalities are on the rise due to the ever-increasing number of people opting […]

Motorcyclists face so many dangers already on the road that it seems terribly unfair that a young man with so much to live for would lose his life when he was decapitated by a low-hanging wire in a bizarre accident. The 27-year-old victim, who was a relatively new husband and excited father-to-be, was riding his […]

The contentious bill allows motorcyclists to lane split, which is also known as white-lining or lane sharing. Now that lane splitting is exiting the legal gray area, it is up to all of us to make […]

As Californians know, lane splitting […]

Last year, more than 5,000 riders were killed in the U.S., according to the Los Angeles Times. But not every state […]
