Top 10 Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Many challenges and dangers face motorcyclists on the road and we know how serious a motorbike accident can be. Motorcyclists lack really any sort of protective structure as with other vehicles. They are more likely to suffer severe or fatal injuries when they are involved in an incident. It is fact that motorcyclists are, on average, 27 times more likely than a car occupant to die in a crash and are over five times as likely to be injured.
10 most common causes of motorbike incidents.
Unsafe lane changes. A driver risks colliding with a motorcyclist when he or she fails to check his or her blind spot or signal when changing lanes.
Car doors. Some accidents occur when a driver opens the door of their parked vehicle in the path of an oncoming motorcycle.
Speeding. A leading cause of all auto accidents, speeding reduces a vehicle’s chance of seeing and reacting to other drivers in time to prevent a collision. The higher the speed, the greater the impact and the more severe the consequences.
Driving under the influence. Drivers who cause accidents because they were driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Lane splitting. Driving between two lanes of traffic is called “lane splitting.” This practice is especially dangerous for inexperienced riders.
Sudden stops. Rear-end accidents resulting from following too closely or an abrupt stop.
Inexperienced drivers. Inexperienced drivers are likely to make unsafe moves on the road that could compromise the safety of other motorists.
Left turn accidents. Right of way errors or miss judgments of distance while making a left turn are common causes of incidents
Dangerous road conditions. Potholes, debris, and a lack of necessary signals and signs can all increase a motorcycle rider’s chances of losing control of his or her vehicle.
And, of course, Motorcycle defects! Always check and make sure you’re bike is safe before you get out on the road.
