Cars And Motorbike, Which is safer?

Are you considering buying cars or motorbike? In term of safety, here is the comparison between these 2 popular vehicles.

Drive a motorcycle is dangerous

Let’s see, raise your hand if you have ever been told that ride a motorcycle is very dangerous. If we give one euro for every time we have to hear things like this, surely we could change the bike much easier than asking for money from the bank.

It turns out that if we look at some statistics compiled, assuming that in the US in 2012, 4.957 people driving a motorcycle died. The data come from various sources, but all refer to the USA.

In 2015:

  • Alcohol killed in 2010 to 25.692 people.
  • 440,000 people a year from diseases related to smoking die.
  • Poor diet and lack of exercise is behind the death of 400,000 people.
  • Nearly 98,000 Americans died last year because of preventable medical errors.
  • The secondhand smoke causes 49,000 deaths annually in passive smokers.
  • 48,614 Americans died from flu 2003/04.
  • 39,000 people die each year from poisoning or drug homemade products.
  • Firearms caused 31,940 deaths last year in the USA, most were suicides.
  • A fall at home is behind 25,000 deaths annually.
  • 20,000 people died because of sexually transmitted diseases.
  • 17,000 people died from drug abuse.
  • About 9,000 people died in an accident in the bathroom at 1.999.

NHTSA estimates that 24% of traffic accidents are caused by distracted motorbike drivers. Which means that at least 7,247 people died.

So you know, when you say that driving a motorcycle is dangerous, you have a few arguments not to pursue the discussion. But above all, we must emphasize that if we do not conduct all with respect for the rules and other road users, of little worth these statistics.

Meanwhile, Cars must meet a lot of safety standard.

And although we are still afraid to use bicycles as a means of transport, the capital, Bogota, was recently chosen by the Spanish Eroski Consumer Foundation as the eighth best city in the world to be transported in these two-wheeled vehicles in Colombia.

So why this means of transport is not used by citizens? Many complaints about the insecurity as an obstacle to using it regularly. Others argue that the geography of their cities are not right to use it and even car drivers do not respect their path and therefore may be vulnerable to suffer a traffic accident.

For these and many other reasons, the use of bicycles in Colombia is still rare. But, if you have not thought of using your bike as transportation, whether for short journeys, you should do that because you can benefit from your health, care for the environment and your pocket.
