Motorcycles only make up 3% of all registered vehicles in Georgia. However, the fatality rate of riding a bike is 27 times higher than that of driving a typical subcompact vehicle, and it’s easy to understand why. Apart from being ten times smaller than a car, motorcycles also lack many safety features. Despite that, they are allowed to travel alongside larger vehicles on busy roads.
