It’s a well-known fact that cars and motorbikes have their individual pros and cons. For example, if your regular commute to work and back each day takes you through built-up, inner-city areas, a motorbike is more beneficial than a car because you can weave through the traffic and get to your destination quicker.

However, if you need to transport a number of passengers or a boot full of cargo, this task will be virtually impossible on a motorbike, and so a car would have the upper hand here. But did you know that, overall, a car is more useful and practical than a motorbike? Here are five reasons to illustrate why!
1. In bad weather, cars are less dangerous to drive than motorbikes

When we all go out on the road, we would love for the weather conditions to always be perfect.
But sadly, this is not always the case. Although stopping distances are often greater for cars and motorbikes when it’s raining or snowing outside, you are far more likely to reach your destination in one piece if you are inside of a car.
2. You can’t travel in comfort when you’re riding a motorbike

Don’t get me wrong; riding a motorbike is always going to be fun and exhilarating, but if you’ve got a long distance to cover before reaching your destination, driving in a car is going to be a better option for comfort – and maintaining good posture!
Have you ever driving a long distance on a motorbike? Let me tell you, it’s not a comfortable experience!
3. Car drivers are more likely to walk away unscathed from accidents

I know there are loads of websites that will tell you that motorbikes are safer than cars, but what these websites don’t really point out is that car drivers are statistically more likely to walk away unharmed from an accident than motorbike riders.
This is because motorbike riders tend to perform manoeuvres on the road that are either unexpected or dangerous, and car drivers don’t always spot these manoeuvres in advance.
4. Cars are more convenient to drive

Let’s face it; when you want to go somewhere in a car, all you have to do is jump in behind the wheel and go! But if you have a motorbike, you have to make sure that you are wearing the appropriate attire and put your helmet on before you set off.
Cars, such as the ones you can buy from www.easternwestern.co.uk, are convenient forms of transportation, whereas a lot more effort is involved when you have to get on a motorbike!
5. Cars are more practical

Unless you want to completely overload your motorbike and make your trip on the road significantly more dangerous as this person on his motorbike above has done, you would do better to load any cargo you need to transport inside of a car!
