Bakersfield, CA - Dawn St Accident Leaves Biker Critically Injured

Maintaining an accident fatality rate that is nearly 30 times larger than the accident fatality rate of cars and trucks, collisions involving motorcycles are becoming an ever-growing source of uneasiness for California Highway Patrol officers who have implemented various projects and programs, such as a refresher course for biker’s who hold a valid license but haven’t ridden in a while, all aimed at keeping motorcycle riders safe.
