The Highest rate of accident in my home town Davao Philippines, the fast in the furious bikers every night take more action for drag racing are trend for young adult and non pro driver and professional drivers are no excuse for accident every night, super highway control by those young gangster motorcycle club association every take their event to find drag race riders opponent. Land transportation Office record of conservative rate of 60% of motorcycle accident due to undisciplined drivers, drag racing and influence by drugs and alcohol and cause death for local drivers, take my advise don't drive while drunk.

I agree with you..actually motorcycle riding is really prone to accidents whether you are drunk or not or a pro or not..your only personal protection are helmet and knee/elbow pads, unlike four wheel vehicle the driver is surrounded by metal covering his whole body, if a vehicle strikes on you goodluck!!!!-you are lucky to end up with only bruises and wounds..=) My boyfriend always considering the idea of buying a motorcycle and I always say NO for an answer...lol =)

Motorcycles are a great way to get around, however young people tend to speed whether they are on a motorcycle or in an automobile. I own and ride a motorbike and I am a Gramma. I have had many friends killed in accidents caused by vehicles not being aware of motorcycles. Cars turning left infront of bikes is a common cause of accidents, also inexperience and speed. I live in Canada and Mexico and ride nearly everyday. I have been lucky!
