Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcyclists face many dangers and challenges while out on the road. Many of these challenges can result in a motorcycle accident that causes severe injury or death. The most common causes of these accidents include:
- Car doors: When a driver opens a door after parking their car, a motorcycle could be in their path, resulting in a severe accident.
- Speeding: Speeding is a leading cause of all vehicle accidents, including motorcycle accidents. The faster a vehicle goes, the lower your ability to slow down and react to the dangers ahead.
- Driving while under the influence: Vehicles being driven by individuals under the influence are one of the top causes of accidents on the road. For motorcyclists, being hit by a drunk driver can have serious consequences.
- Improper lane usage: Lane changes that happen too fast or driving between two lanes can cause accidents due to improper lane usage.
Other causes such as inexperienced drivers, right of way errors and dangerous road conditions also cause motorcycle accidents. However, driver negligence when it comes to sharing the road with motorcyclists causes more devastating accidents each year.
