common causes & prevention of motorcycle accidents
The most common cause of motorcycle accidents
The most common cause of motorcycle accidents is the driver of a passenger vehicle failing to see a motorcyclist approach or turn. For this reason, it’s important that you make yourself more visible by using lights and reflective gear at night as well as being aware of your surroundings when driving in traffic during the day.
Formal motorcycle training
Motorcycles are often considered the most dangerous means of transportation due to their higher potential for accidents with only a fraction of motorcycle drivers having received formal training. Pursuing specific instruction can help prevent accidents from occurring as result and ensure that more riders drive safely on the road.
Only 10% percent-or less, depending on where you live-of motorcyclists have ever had any form of formal training in how to ride one; over 90% of motorcycle crashes involve an unqualified driver who is not aware or prepared enough when it comes to handling bike issues which can lead up accident rates being so high among inexperienced bikers. A lot goes into operating a two-wheeler including knowing braking zones and lean angles during turns.
Follow safety protocols
Motorcyclists are often at a disadvantage on the roads, which is why it’s so important for them to take some responsibility and take safety precautions. One of these steps includes wearing your helmet; helmets saved nearly 2000 lives in the past year by just protecting our most vulnerable body part: The head! If you want to reduce your risk of needing emergent or ongoing medical care as a result of an accident, be sure to wear that helmet every time you hop onto those handlebars!
