In short, many motorcycle-car accidents are the result of car drivers not taking care to ensure that a motorcycle is not present before pulling out of a spot or changing lanes.

As you can probably imagine, the majority of motorcycle accidents involve cars rather than other motorcycles.
Much of the renewed public safety urgency concerning motorcycle awareness has been directed not towards motorcyclists, but towards drivers.
Despite the fact that drivers have no more of a right to be on the roads than those who ride motorcycles, there is often a public presumption that drivers are the presumed holder of “right-of-way”.
Often times, this can lead to a culture in which motorcyclists are treated as second class citizens rather than as equals with drivers.
