Motorcycle vs. Motor Vehicles

The vast majority of motorcycle accidents also involve a motor vehicle. Because motorcycles are narrow and maneuver quickly through traffic, drivers can easily miss them. They are advised to use their mirrors and look specifically for motorcyclists before changing lanes or making quick turns. However, distracted drivers tend to forget this instruction. The weight of a car combined with its’ speed can result in very serious and life-threatening injuries when a collision occurs.

Important rules that drivers must know when sharing the road with motorcycles:

  • Keep in mind that motorcycles may decelerate when shifting gears or easing off the throttle
  • Motorcyclists may have to swerve to avoid debris in the roadway
  • Motorcyclists may be closer than they appear in a side mirror
  • Allow more distance between motorcycles and cars, especially if the roads are slippery

Common Causes of Motorcycle Crashes

Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Failing to yield
  • Failing to check blind spots
  • Intoxicated drivers
  • Poorly maintained roads
  • Dangerous roadways
  • Extreme weather conditions
  • Faulty brakes or equipment

Motorcycle Safety Tips

Motorcyclists should take extra precaution to help minimize the risk of accident and serious injuries.

Here are some important tips to keep in mind when riding a motorcycle:

  • Wear protective headgear in compliance with Missouri state law Section 302.020 RSMo.
  • Wear leather or thick clothing to protect skin in a crash
  • Keep headlights on to increase visibility
  • Wear reflective gear or put reflective stickers on your motorcycle
  • Signal your turns in advance
  • Be aware of car and truck blind spots
  • Give yourself plenty of space
  • Drive defensively
