The Cost of Convenience

In times of inflation, the rise in costs of living can prompt people to make certain changes to their lifestyles. This usually means a lower amount of expenditure on shopping, travel, and restaurant dining. 

It also means pulling back on one of the most common everyday expenditures: transportation. 

Not a day goes by without at least one viral tweet bemoaning the soaring cost of gas. And while it may not be water, food, or shelter, fuel is an actual necessity for most Americans. We drive our cars to get to work to do our jobs to earn a living for ourselves and our families. We drive to drop our children off at school. And we drive our cars to do our weekly grocery run, mail an important package or letter, see the doctor, and meet up with friends.

But expensive gas prices aren’t the only thing holding Americans back. Time is money—and time being held up in traffic is time that isn’t spent working away at our jobs, gigs, and side hustles.

Americans are starved of time—more specifically, we’re starved of convenience.

Scooters, bikes, and motorcycles are becoming more and more popular, and the trend isn’t slowing down. With urban forms of transportation expanding and increasing in popularity, motorists need to—literally and figuratively—navigate a new era on the road.

Curves and turns should always be entered into with caution—driving too close to other vehicles or braking too fast can lead to disaster. The United States Department of Transportation reports that in 2020, 5,579 motorcyclists died. Furthermore, “per vehicle miles traveled in 2020, motorcyclists were about 28 times more likely than passenger vehicle occupants to die in a motor vehicle crash and were 4 times more likely to be injured.”

Unfortunately, following all safety protocols and practices still puts riders at risk of danger. In the event of a collision, motorcyclists have far less protection than motor vehicle drivers. Even with the best intentions and utmost caution, motorists are still at risk of being involved in an accident.

In the case of a motorcycle accident, it is best to speak with a lawyer to discuss your case. Riding a motorcycle isn’t always as cool as Hollywood movies depict it to be. It involves knowing your rights and the compensation you deserve in the event of an accident.

The average citizen has a very minimal understanding of the law. Therefore, it is best to consult with a lawyer with expertise and experience in personal injury law.
