AMERiders thinks that If More People Ride Motorcycles Everyday It Would Benefit Everyone, plus wouldn’t it just be more fun that way? We all love adding adventure to our lives. When our commute is drab and boring cause we do the same ole same ole we need to spice it up as well. If we Ride a Motorcycle to work every day then that helps our commute be a bit more fun.
That Old Hated Thing Traffic
There are some places that Motorcyclists live that have out of control congestion and traffic is accepted, although it is massively inconvenient as well as, part of daily life. In some places, areas of the U.S. people spend an average of 81 hours in traffic. Traffic can be more of a concern even over personal safety and housing costs to some residents in those areas.
Lane splitting is legal in some states and in almost everywhere outside the United States as well. In those states which may be clogged up with traffic, a motorcyclist can save hundreds of hours per year of hours per year. Not only are motorcycles cheaper to buy, maintain, insure, and run than cars, but if roughly a tenth of the population began to Ride Motorcycles Everyday, the resulting decrease in traffic and congestion would be astounding.
Grab a Bike and Help Decrease Traffic Congestion
A study out of Belgium that looked at how commuting via motorcycle could reduce traffic congestion. It reported that if just 10 percent of all private automobiles were replaced by motorcycles or scooters that congestion would drop by a substantial and noticeable 40 percent. This would make a 25% shift from four wheels to two would reportedly resulting eliminating congestion in its entirety.
Although the existence of traffic, on one hand, is theoretically a good thing, as far as traffic goes. It means a lot of people have jobs to get to and places to be where they are earning or spending money. This means there is a financial cost brought by this gridlock. affects freight and deliveries arriving on time and effects the number of deliveries they can make per day, it impedes overall productivity, and it costs money via time spent sitting in traffic. Bringing about an effecting on businesses in high-traffic locations. Have you ever considered going to a restaurant or bar near a sports stadium or arena on a game day? Really? Why not?
Reasons to Ride Motorcycles Everyday
There are quite a few additional reasons why people making the switch from cars to motorcycles benefits the road-going public as a whole. Pollution caused by private vehicles that commute would go down because of some Euro emission laws. Especially if they are Combined with laws that some places like Paris have put in place banning older Motorcycles from being used on public roads.
Other Reasons to Ride Motorcycles Everyday
Insurance would also go down for most Car drivers. Motorcycle insurance isn’t only cheaper than car insurance because motorcycles are themselves cheaper. It’ s also because cars are much larger vehicles capable of doing much more damage when they crash into something. When you pay for your car insurance you’re paying for more than just your vehicle. You are also paying for all the less-than-stellar drivers on the roads who are frequently colliding with things. Fewer cars mean fewer colliders, which presumably means cheaper insurance, (though we by no means an expert on this so there may be factors we are failing to consider).
If you do research and review studies and polls related to congestion and traffic, words like “miserable and tremendously annoying” come up almost everywhere you happened to be looking. This brings us to the last factor that’s arguably the most important riding a motorcycle is just plain fun. Commuting can go from an unpleasant necessary evil to just plain fun that manages to cram some adventure and recreation into your daily routine.
For some of us riding a motorcycle is one of the best parts of our life. If it can at also be practical, economical, and beneficial to society than that’s even better as well. While we can’t say what the exact effect would be in major US cities without more research, we can pretty only assume that a larger minority of riders would mean a noticeable decrease in the universally dreaded gridlock that millions of Americans experience every day.
