And, make passing away in a motorcycle accident and automatic darwin award?

I’m gong to take your question seriously, as someone who rides a motorbike and drives a car and cycles on the road.
Yes they’re inherently more dangerous than a car; less protection, less stability, less grip.
And lots of accidents happen because of mistakes made by riders.
But: traffic congestion is a big problem in a lot of cities and towns in all developed countries. Most cars carry only the driver, especially during commuting times. Two wheeled transport is much more efficient at using road space, giving more room for buses and commercial vehicles and allowing traffic to flow more easily. Parking is much easier too.
Electric bikes and scooters also reduce localised air pollution in cities and in many parts of the world can be recharged with solar power between the ride to work and the ride back.
What’s needed though, is much more careful and respectful behaviour from all road users. Everybody on the road has a responsibility to minimise the risk they pose to others.
Stunts and risky driving belong on a track.
In the meantime, if you’re stuck in traffic, try to remember that if every lone car driver was on a bike, there’d be no traffic jam.

Or should we just hold a short service for the English language every time you get on the internet?
Your fat little thumbs got too sweaty and you just clicked submit without reading what you wrote.
