When motorcycle riders get on the roadways, they place their trust in drivers of larger vehicles. Motorcyclists should be able to expect other drivers to remain alert and keep an eye out for smaller vehicles, but unfortunately that isn't always the case, especially when drunk drivers put motorcyclists' lives at risk.
No matter how careful pedestrians are, their fate often rests in the hands of the motorists on the roadway. A simple act like crossing the street shouldn't put a person's life at risk, but a reckless or intoxicated driver can cause the ultimate tragedy.
