5 Most Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
If you’re an experienced rider, then you know exactly how scary the open road can be. Accidents can be minor or severe, but a motorcycle related accident is anything short of terrifying.
Here are the 5 most common causes of motorcycle accidents:
- Blind Sided:
Speeding reduces the amount of reaction time for both the rider and anyone else sharing the road. This can lead to a loss of control and the inability to avoid obstacles safely.
Most drivers will rarely see you coming and that doesn’t leave you much room for error. Splitting lanes is one of the scarier parts when it comes to riding with other cars on the road, and them being so close to you.
- Quick, and Dangerous Moves:
In order to avoid this, it’s important for riders to properly calculate their timing and speed when it comes to a turn. When riders come in too quick on a turn, it often results in braking which leads to swerving and wobbling.
So ensure you practice caution and are aware of your surroundings. Pace yourself. It’s not a race.
So always be safe, give yourself room for error, and again… always be aware of your surroundings.
As you can see, riding isn’t as simple as getting on a bike and enjoying the scenery. It requires your full attention and quick reflexes.
Always be safe, wear full-protective riding gear, be aware of your surroundings… and most importantly – take things slow. Like I said before, this is not a race and your life isn’t worth this one ride.
