How Negligence Causes Motorcycle Accidents
As a motorist, you are always required to remain vigilant on the road. Too often, however, drivers forget to look out for other travelers. This can cause the driver to miss pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorcyclists.
When a driver doesn’t see, forgets, or intentionally disregards an individual or vehicle, an accident can occur. Here are the most common actions taken by drivers that lead to most motorcycle accidents.
Motorcycle accidents often occur due to the following motorist actions:
Going too fast
Following too closely (Tailgating)
Not signaling a turn or lane change
Disobeying traffic signs and lights
Distracted driving (On the phone, texting, etc.)
