While drivers of both motorcycles and cars face similar situations that cause accidents, motorcyclists are particularly at-risk for accidents caused by distracted or careless drivers. The most common accident that can be devastating for motorcyclists is when a driver turns left in front of the motorcycle. Drivers are not usually looking for motorcycles on the road and tend to “miss” them or underestimate their speed when trying to make a turn. There are also instances where the motorcycle is in the driver’s blind spot or there are other things obstructing the driver’s clear view of the motorcycle. Lastly, it has been reported that some motorcycle accidents have ocurred as a result of defective motorcycle equipment, which have caused serious injuries to the driver.
