What are the most common motorcycle accidents?

February 28, 2022

As a motorcycle enthusiast you are more likely to be involved in an accident in the following scenarios:

  • Left-hand turn – one of the most common motorist accidents. A driver making a left may not see you and suddenly turn into your path.
  • Lane splitting – riding in-between lanes can be a risky maneuver for motorcyclists when auto drivers are not anticipating you passing and when the distance between vehicles is narrow.
  • Excessive speed – speeding on highways or streets can be a leading cause of a motorcycle injury when reaction times are greatly reduced. The faster you are going in a crash the higher the likelihood of a more severe injury or fatality.
  • Intersections – the size and profile of a motorcycle makes it more difficult for automobile drivers to see you on the road. This can lead to cars changing into your lane or cutting you off at a right-hand turn.
