The majority of motorcyclists get their first accident in their early 20s or 30s.
However, a recent study has found that older riders are more likely to have an accident and are more at risk of injury or death.
Symptoms of a motorcycle accident In the study, researchers from the University of North Carolina found that men aged 30 to 54 were more likely than women to have been involved in an accident.
Researchers also found that drivers between the ages of 40 and 54 were at increased risk of being involved in a motorcycle collision.
Men were also more likely to be involved in motorcycle crashes than women were.
This suggests that older men and women are more susceptible to motorcycle crashes.
“There are certain things we can do to minimize the risk of motorcycle crashes in older people,” said Dr. Daniel Siegel, one of the study’s authors.
“One of those things is to get as many of them in as we can.
There are some very specific ways to get in and out of the car safely.”
Siegel said the researchers found that people aged over 40 who drove older were at a higher risk of having an accident, with men more likely and older men more at high risk.
“The older age group is not necessarily a younger group, but it is more likely that the driver is older and has had an accident,” Siegel said.
Dr. Mark Wesseling, a professor at the University, said the study suggests that people older than 40 are more vulnerable to motorcycle accidents than younger drivers.
“It’s more likely the older age and drivers are more willing to risk injury or worse,” Dr. Wesselings said.
“If you’re driving your car, you have to be careful.
You have to pay attention, you’ve got to slow down, and it’s all very easy to do.
But when you’re young and careless, you’re going to get hit.”
Dr. J. Michael Siegel and Dr. Mark Siegel are co-authors of the motorcycle injury and motor vehicle accident study.
The study was published in the Journal of Traumatic Stress.
