What causes motorcycle accidents?
Drivers of other vehicles that act in a negligent manner are the most common source of motorcycle accidents. In about 70 percent of all collisions, the at-fault driver says they did not see the motorcyclist. Other factors in motorcycle accidents may include:
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs
- Distracted driving
- Aggressive driving
Most motorcycle accidents are preventable with attentive driving. Sadly, motorcycle accidents result in a higher rate of severe injuries and fatalities than accidents that involve only passenger vehicles.
