However, many motorcycle accidents can often become serious due to the motorcyclist’s lack of protection. When up against a car or a truck on a roadway, a motorcyclist can quickly become the injured victim in an auto accident. Most motorcyclists have learned to drive defensively, but distracted drivers remain on Missouri roads.
