Motorcycling and scooter riding are popular means of recreation and transportation in Georgia, especially in today's era of high fuel prices.
Although motorcyclists and scooter riders have the same rights on the road as other motorists, they are often made to feel like second-class citizens. This is unfortunate, especially as they are among the most vulnerable users of Georgia roadways.
Even the most careful rider can suffer catastrophic injuries if the driver of a vehicle is negligent. However, negligent motorists and their insurers can be quick to blame riders for causing accidents, or to downplay their responsibility for causing the rider's injuries. "I didn't see him," is not an excuse when a devastating collision could have been avoided.
