Causes for Motorcycle Accidents
No matter how safe riders are on their motorcycles, there are still many factors that can lead to accidents, such as:
The low profiles of motorcycles compared to cars and trucks makes them more difficult for many drivers to see—especially those who aren’t paying close attention to their surroundings. Each year, thousands of motorcycle accidents are caused by drivers turning in front of motorcycles because they don’t see them.
State and local governments are responsible for keeping roadways in good condition and free from hazards like potholes and loose asphalt or gravel, which can be dangerous for riders.
Riders often travel together in groups, but these groups must practice good communication to prevent riders from colliding or moving into other riders’ lanes of travel.
