Motorcycles are often the most preferred mode of transportation of some people living in areas where traffic congestion is a daily problem. With motorcycles, they can easily maneuver through heavy traffic without violating any traffic rule and regulation, although not all major roads allow motorcycles to pass through, especially the major highways and interstate freeways.
However, motorcycles are not safe to ride, especially if the driver is not really an expert in driving this kind of vehicle. It needs a quick balancing act for the driver not to crash if the motorcycle hits something hard on the road, or if the motorcycle is hit by a much bigger vehicle like cars and SUVs. Or if the rider is driving under the influence of either liquor or drugs, all the more that he is prone to accident.
But the worst thing that a motorcycle rider may face while on the road with other vehicles is if it will collide with trailer or camper trucks, or other big vehicles. For sure, the rider will suffer major or serious injuries or even death.
Even if the motorcycle rider is extremely cautious in driving, there are other drivers on the road who are negligent and carefree, which often result in accidents.
But why do motorcycle accidents happen?
There could be a lot of reasons. Driving under the influence, texting or calling while driving, sudden switching of lanes without giving the prior signal, or improper U-turn in busy intersections.
There are other possible reasons why motorcycle accidents occur. But one thing is expected to happen — the rider will surely get injured, the severity of which will depend on the impact of the accident.
