Increases And Differences With Motorcycle Accidents
Driving around, you might have seen the yellow “Watch for Motorcycles” signs on cars and on media outlets. Motorcyclists face extra dangers when they take their bike out for a drive that other motorists do not experience.
First, all drivers have blind spots. A blind spot refers to an area of your vision that becomes impaired when operating a motor vehicle. Most times, the rear of your car blocks the vision. On tractor trailers, the blind spots increase. Motorcyclists, due to their size, often become hard to see in blind spots. When people look in their mirrors to change lanes, they might not see the motorcyclist as well as they would have seen a car.
The second reason for the increased danger is the lack of physical protection for motorcyclists. Cars have a protective shell of metal. Manufacturers test cars in such a way to shield drivers and passengers from certain injuries in the event of an accident. Motorcyclists do not have that luxury. Add lack of a decent helmet into the mix, and the injuries could be catastrophic.
What does this mean for motorcyclists? It means that death, serious long-term injuries, and a totaled motorcycle is highly probable.
