Factors That Contribute To Motorcycle Accidents
Bikers are largely unprotected against the force and impact of a larger, heavier vehicle. Even while wearing protective gear, a vehicle striking a motorcycle or causing it to lose control can cause serious or even fatal damage. Some of the most common reasons why these accidents happen include the following:
- Drivers do not see motorcycles in enough time to avoid a collision.
- A driver is not able to judge what is a safe distance between their vehicle and the bike.
- Drivers act aggressively around motorcycles, such as speeding or driving too close.
