Motorcycles lack the same amount of safety features as other vehicles and put riders at-risk for incurring personal injuries or even fatalities during a crash. Many times, catastrophic injuries may result from a serious accident like this. A driver operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs increases the possibility of severe consequences for all parties involved.
