Motorcyclists often face the potential of serious harm when involved in an accident.

Anyone who has driven on California highways is likely aware of the unpredictable nature of traffic. As a result, all drivers must remain vigilant at all times, prepared for traffic that may slow or stop unexpectedly.

For example, police are currently investigating a collision that involved four cars and resulted in a fatality.
