Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Ensuring that you are being safe on the road basically breaks down into watching what you are doing and watching what other people are doing. Even the safest and most diligent motorcycle riders can be injured by negligent drivers. Knowing what to look out for can help you avoid dangerous situations.

Common causes for motorcycle accidents and things you should avoid include:

  • Cars turning left in front of you expectedly
  • Entering a corner too fast
  • Car changes lanes into you
  • Gravel or loose pavement
  • Slippery roads
  • Car doors suddenly opening in front of you

Unfortunately, the best way to avoid most of these collisions is to simply sense that they are going to happen. Really pay attention to the drivers around and note how they are maneuvering. If you have a feeling that a driver can’t see you, they probably can’t! If you can predict it, you can prevent it.
