In the United States, a large majority of motorcycling is recreational. Elsewhere in the world, many people depend on two- or three wheels to go about their daily commute. Did you know the top 5 countries with the highest percent of motorcycle/moped/scooter use:

  1. Vietnam – 79%
  2. Indonesia – 67%
  3. Taiwan – 48%
  4. India – 40%
  5. Pakistan – 35%

These (and all other) two- and three-wheeled users can all benefit when motorists look twice.
