Liability In Sacramento Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcyclists are much more likely to be involved in car accidents due to their small profile. Many people are killed or seriously injured when other drivers fail to yield the right of way while making left turns. According to California Vehicle Code 21801, “The driver of a vehicle intending to turn to the left or to complete a U-turn upon a highway, or to turn left into public or private property, or an alley, shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles approaching from the opposite direction which are close enough to constitute a hazard at any time during the turning movement.”
