Road Hazards for Motorcyclists
A pothole can easily become a serious situation for any person on the road. Every year thousands of accidents are attributed to poor road conditions and a lack of response to these deadly blemishes by the local or national government. But while road defects hold potential dangers for all drivers, they are particularly deadly for motorcyclists.
Motorcycles are largely unprotected and weigh a fraction of what cars do. For most people in cars, a pothole might mean a blowout to one wheel. To a motorcycle rider, a pot hole can mean being ejected from his or her vehicle as it completely flips when it hits the edge of the hole.

Types of Road Defects
The same road defects that can cause an automobile driver to lose control of his or her car are a potential threat to motorcyclists, but certain defects are even more serious for motorcyclists. These defects include:
- Poor road drainage
- Debris in the road
- Improperly paved roads
