Motorcycle and car accident

Sharing the Road with Motorcycles

Motorcycle accidents can potentially lead to severe, even catastrophic injuries. Unfortunately, many of these accidents are the fault of the automobile driver and are often preventable. Drivers of cars, vans, trucks and other vehicles have a responsibility to drive cautiously, so that motorcycle riders have a better chance of staying safe on the road.

Ways You Can Help Motorcyclists Stay Safe

There are substantially more trucks and cars than motorcycles on the road, which is often why many drivers tend to forget to look out for them.

Here are some ways you can prevent motorcycle accidents:

  • Due to their size, motorcycles often easily hide in the blind spots of cars. To ensure you do not miss them, it is important to always take a moment to check for motorcycles when turning at an intersection or changing lanes.
  • Motorcycles also tend to appear farther away. To prevent a collision, assume that they are closer than they look.
  • A bumper-to-bumper accident with a motorcycle is far more dangerous than one between two automobiles, so it is important to leave plenty of distance to ensure you are always able to stop on time.

Motorcyclists have the same rights as other motorists on the road, so keep this in mind as you share the road with them.
