Motorcyclists face increased dangers of being involved in motorcycle accidents and suffering serious injuries or fatalities as a result. Many accidents happen because the drivers of other vehicles fail to see cyclists and cause them to wreck. Motorcyclists
The most frequent causes of motorcycle accidents include:
A failure to notice incoming motorcycles or a failure to check all sides before changing lanes is another frequent cause of motorcycle accidents. Whether it is turning left at a tricky intersection or changing lanes without having a wide berth, seconds of inattention can lead to fatal outcomes.
This is more or less involved in all the other causes. Speeding reduces a vehicle’s chance of reacting to other drivers in time to avoid a crash. As the speed rises, the impact and associated risk increases.
Riders must undergo extensive training before they get on the road. However, very often, riders start sooner than they should. According to the NHTSA in 2017, riders without a valid license caused 29% of all motorcycle fatalities.
Many accidents occur because drivers of passenger vehicles misjudge the speed of motorcycles.
Despite extensive campaigns by various organizations, motorcycle accidents caused by intoxication are still very high. The percentage of intoxicated motorcycle riders involved in fatal crashes is greater than intoxicated automobile drivers, as shown by NHTSA reports.
Debris, potholes, confusing signs, faulty traffic signals, and other road-related elements also lead to catastrophic motorcycle accidents.
