Any motorcyclist involved in an accident is at risk of suffering serious and life-changing injuries. Even at low speeds, collisions with a car can do enormous damage to a person on a bike whose main protection may be limited to the clothes on his or her back.
Los Angeles is full of pedestrians. People are out during the day and at night walking, jogging, skateboarding and biking around the city, and motorists are expected to share the road with all types of pedestrians. Unfortunately, pedestrian accidents continue to happen when motorists and other parties fail to observe traffic laws and safety precautions that are designed to protect pedestrians.
