Helmet light system aims to prevent motorcycle crashes

Every year, more than 4,500 people are killed in motorcycle-related accidents in the U.S., according to new data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

As such, it seems that more needs to be done to promote motorcycle safety to drivers and motorcyclists alike.
