Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents can occur due to a variety of factors. Although many of these are related to the unique characteristics of motorcycles the main reason is the behavior of other drivers on the road.

Here are some common causes of motorcycle accidents involving cars and other motor vehicles:

  • Lack of visibility: Motorcycles are smaller and less visible than cars or trucks, making it harder for other drivers to see them. Accidents often happen when a motorist fails to spot a motorcycle in traffic, during lane changes, or when turning at intersections.
  • Left-turn collisions: One of the most common types of motorcycle accidents occurs when a car or truck makes a left turn in front of an oncoming motorcycle. The driver may misjudge the motorcycle's speed or fail to see it altogether, resulting in a collision.
  • Distracted driving: When drivers engage in activities that divert their attention from the road, such as texting, talking on the phone, eating, or using in-car technology, they are more likely to overlook motorcycles and cause accidents.
  • Failure to yield: Motorists sometimes fail to yield the right-of-way to motorcycles, especially at intersections, when merging lanes, or when entering or exiting driveways or parking lots. This can lead to dangerous collisions.
  • Driving under the influence: Alcohol or drug impairment significantly impairs a driver's judgment, reaction time, and coordination. Intoxicated drivers may not be able to see motorcycles or react appropriately to their presence, resulting in severe accidents.
  • Unsafe lane changes: When a driver fails to check their blind spots or uses their mirrors improperly, they may change lanes into a motorcycle's path, causing a collision. Motorcycles can be easily hidden in a vehicle's blind spot due to their smaller size.
  • Opening car doors: A common scenario called "dooring" occurs when a driver or passenger opens a car door without checking for oncoming motorcycles. This sudden obstacle can cause the motorcyclist to collide with the door or swerve into traffic to avoid it.
  • Speeding: Excessive speed reduces a driver's ability to perceive and react to potential hazards, making it more difficult to avoid a collision with a motorcycle. Speeding drivers may misjudge the distance and speed of an approaching motorcycle, leading to accidents.
  • Aggressive driving: Tailgating, sudden lane changes, and aggressive maneuvers by drivers can startle or intimidate motorcyclists, increasing the risk of accidents. Aggressive driving behaviors are dangerous for all road users, including motorcyclists.
  • Inexperienced drivers: Motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable when sharing the road with inexperienced drivers who may lack the necessary skills to anticipate and respond to motorcycle-specific situations, increasing the likelihood of accidents.
