What Are The Common Causes Of Motorcycle Accidents?

In California, there are many factors that can contribute to a motorcycle accident. Listed below are a few of the most frequent causes of motorcycle accidents in Riverside: 

Motorcycle Lane Splitting. Unfortunately, this is a recurring issue that has claimed the most lives. Lane splitting accidents are a type of accident caused by a motorcyclist riding between two lanes in order to avoid slower traffic. Due to the restricted space, the rider has less control over the two wheeled-vehicle and can easily cause a crash. 

Left Hand Turns. These types of accidents rarely cause injuries to the car driver, but do cause serious damage to the motorcyclist. These types of accidents are caused by a car making a left hand turn and colliding with a motorcyclist. Poor visibility or delayed reactions are usually the cause of such accidents. Typically this happens when a motorcycle either:

  1. Rides directly through an intersection, or 
  2. Speeds past a car or truck  

Alcohol. Unsurprisingly, according to many reports, motorcycle speeding and motorcycle accidents usually involve some sort of alcohol consumption. In fact, some studies show that almost 50% of motorcycle accidents involve some sort of intoxication. 

Road Hazards. Motorcyclists are at an increased risk when it comes to hitting road hazards. Considering their small size and light frames, the impact of hitting an obstacle in the road could severely affect the rider’s balance and cause a violent accident. Listed below are a few potential road hazards: 

  • Street construction 
  • Fallen branches or derooted foliage 
  • Roadkill or other dead animals 
  • Potholes 
  • Wet, icy, or uneven roads
