Driving in Delaware these days is definitely dangerous. Just getting from point A to point B can be an adventure. Those who travel by motorcycle face even more risks than those in passenger vehicles. Motorcycles are much smaller than most vehicles so they can be harder for other drivers to see. This is a main cause of the vast majority of car accidents involving motorcycles.
Skilled surgeons and physicians across the country save thousands of lives every year.

Motorists in Delaware are constantly at risk when traveling these days. To mitigate some of this risk, drivers should always practice safe driving habits, such as removing distractions, paying attention to surroundings and staying focused and alert.
