WISCONSIN - About 100 motorcyclists die every year on Wisconsin roads, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. Wisconsin troopers think many motorcycle crashes happen because people in cars don't see the bikers.
"Be aware [that] the other motorists out there may not see [motorcyclists]," says Wisconsin State Patrol Sergeant Travis Wamless. "They're smaller in dimension and often times can be misjudged by their speed and distance from other vehicles, when they're making turns [or] changing lanes."
Both drivers and motorcyclists can do things to prevent accidents from happening.
