Most common causes of motorbike accidents
"Simply being more aware and putting our brains to work can drastically reduce the most common causes of motorcycle accidents"
Today’s motorcycles are made with excellent safety features like grippy tires, powerful brakes, and excellent handling. Even with these tools, motorcycle operators must use their brains to prevent accidents.
Simply being more aware and putting our brains to work can drastically reduce the most common causes of motorcycle accidents:
One of the most common motorcycles versus vehicle accidents occurs when a car turns left in front of a motorcycle.
You must anticipate this type of accident to avoid it. The most common causes of motorcycle accidents are changing lanes and cars turning left.
Cars will cut you off because they can't see you or misjudged your distance and speed.
Cars and drivers are accustomed to interacting with other cars and drivers. Motorcycles simply do not compute into their field of vision or their speed and distance calculations.
Speeding is a serious problem on highways. Motorcycle riders enjoy going fast, which can be a dangerous combination when other factors are involved.
Motorcycles are dangerous enough due to their lack of structural support and protection, but when you add in speeds of 100 mph or more, any accident can be fatal.
Speeding is a leading cause of all kinds of car accidents because it reduces a vehicle's ability to see and react to other drivers in time to avoid a crash.
Speaking of poorly maintained roads, road hazards are another common cause of motorcycle accidents.
Motorcyclists are at a higher risk of accident and injury when the road is not properly maintained.
Because motorcycles are smaller and less stable than vehicles, road irregularities and unexpected objects can cause a motorcycle to crash.
As a result, bikers should only ride at a speed where their reaction time and ability to act are well within their field of vision.
On and off the road, alcohol impairs decisions. Riding a motorcycle necessitates razor-sharp reflexes, and even a single drink can shorten reaction times.
Driving while under the influence of alcohol is dangerous no matter what type of vehicle you are driving.
Alcohol impairs judgment and decision-making, as well as response time and reflexes.
Because of the social nature of motorcycling – clubs, outings, events, etc. – motorcyclists appear to be more vulnerable to this behavior.
Unsafe Lane Changing
Lane splitting is a common cause of motorcycle accidents because cars aren't expecting any vehicle to pass them in slowed or stopped traffic, and motorcycles have very little room to maneuver when they move between cars.
Before changing lanes, drivers must check their blind spots, especially on congested highways or main roads.
Turn signals should also be used by drivers. Unfortunately, when changing lanes, many drivers do not pay attention or rely solely on their mirrors.
