Biker Accidents Revvvvving Up

It’s believed that higher gas prices are compelling more riders to trade their four wheels for two. At the same time, hospital emergency rooms are seeing more victims of motorcycle accidents than ever before. It’s probably not coincidence. New York City motorcycle registrations have risen from 26,798 in 2004, to 30,592 as of June 2008. New riders without proper training or experience are probably the cause. Easy Riders, they ain’t.
