Moped, motorcycles and other smaller vehicles can be extremely dangerous for riders and passengers. These types of vehicles do not offer the same protection as a larger vehicle such as a car or a truck in the event of a crash. For that reason, many injuries to moped and motorcycle riders are serious or fatal in nature.
