While many vacationers in Bali are content to laze away under the sun, a good number also enjoy taking the occasional risk and perhaps do things here in Bali that they wouldn’t commonly do at home.
For example, many tourists ride motorbikes without a helmet, despite the fact that the roads here are not noted for their softness.
Bike and scooter accidents are unfortunately common, and they usually happen due to one of what we’ve coined the ‘7 Deadly Biking Sins’:
- Riding on poorly maintained roads
- Riding shoddily maintained bikes
- Riding without a helmet
- Riding without a proper license
- Ignoring road rules
- Choosing poorly lit roads
- Riding while intoxicated.
Committing just one of these can lead to a devastating accident.
