Longstanding safety studies have been called upon for project funding to determine whether or not motorcycles are dangerous and to what degree. Although such funding has not been pledged, a new study of safety factors will help to determine legislative decisions and law enforcement recommendations. According to statistics showing that motorcycles are dangerous, it was found that 3/4 accidents involved a passenger vehicle and almost half of fatal accidents involved alcohol. As the motorcycle size increases, the severity of injuries increased with typical errors involving a sliding fall due to over breaking. Typically weather conditions are not a factor. The typical cause of motorcycle accidents is a failure of motorists to recognise motorcyclists on the road and violate their right-of-way. Insurance for dirt bike owners can remain low if accidents are minimal, and through improved safety. Wearing appropriate gear such as a helmet and durable gloves, jacket, and pants can substantially mitigate crash injuries. Wearing conspicuous clothing such as bright colours, or reflective clothing could greatly increase safety.
