Teenaged drivers, especially those with new licenses, have horrific accident rates, as well as older drivers. But drivers in age groups between those should be just as cautious -- especially if they operate vehicles with anti-lock brakes, or if they carry children in their vehicles. Drivers should always keep their vehicles well maintained and keep the tempers calm.
Motorcyclists are also prone to serious accidents involving death and severe injury. But with proper safety gear, that threat decreases substantially. The Motorcycle Safety Foundation recommends wearing five pieces of protective gear while riding a motorcycle.
Non-motorized transportation isn't risk-free either, especially when it's done carelessly. Pedestrians need to exercise caution while walking along streets, inline skaters need to wear protection and skate within their abilities, and bicyclists need to remember the rules of the road.
