Motorcycle conundrumCreated by:
Based on my experience, most of the trauma cases that I encounter in the emergency room involved vehicular accidents. Unfortunately, majority of these cases involve motorcycle accidents. I find it particularly devastating to pronounce "dead on arrival" or brain death on a young patient who got into a motorcycle accident. Plenty of times I feel sorry for parents who lost their sons because he was carelessly drunk driving or because he's just plainly going out for fun. In my country, there are no strict regulations on motorcycle riding and a lot of people use this as a mode of transportation because it is cheaper and it can cut through traffic.
Are vehicular accidents common in your region? Is the use of motorcycles also popular in your region and are there policies to regulate its use among teens?
