Common Motorcycle Accidents and How To Avoid Them

 

Left Turning Cars

The most common motorcycle accident is when a vehicle makes a left turn at an intersection in front of a motorcycle. When approaching an intersection, parking lot, or driveway and there is a car in the left hand turning lane, assume that they do not see you and be ready to take evasive action. Watch the vehicle’s wheels rather than the vehicle. This can give you an indication as to what the driver is about to do. Look at what is to the side and behind you. Should you need to move out of the way quickly, you’ll know what route to take.

Gravel in Blind Corners

Rounding a corner to find debris like gravel, sand, or leaves on the road can cause you to loose control of your bike. A good rule of thumb is “slow in, fast out.” Enter corners widely to increase your vision at an easy pace, then gain speed out of the turn when you can see.

Entering Corners Too Quickly

If you turn a corner that tightens unexpectedly, the best way to make it out is to trust your bike and ride it out. Don’t panic and apply the breaks. Be as smooth as possible on the controls.

A Vehicle Merges Into Your Lane

Try to be aware of other driver’s blind spots and stay out of them. Watch for signs that other vehicles are changing lanes. Watch for turn signals, the driver looking around about to change lanes, and their wheels moving.
