Have you or a family member been hurt in a motorcycle accident?
Accidents involving motorcycles and automobiles can be catastrophic. Motorcycle accidents often occur because automobile drivers fail to see motorcyclists. These types of accidents typically happen as drivers change lanes, make right turns, and merge on to highways and freeways. Defensive driving by both the motorcyclist and automobile driver is critical in helping prevent these life-changing accidents.
When operating a motorcycle remember that in the event of an accident, you are the most likely to be injured. To keep you and your bike on the road make sure to:
- Avoid hovering in blind spots. Lots of drivers don't check before switching lanes.
- Don't pull up alongside cars at stoplights. Maintain a safe distance until it's your time to proceed.
- Assume that others will not be looking for you. Be observant and keep yourself away from potentially harmful situations.
