Motorcycle Accidents in Texas
In 2013, approximately 494 motorcyclists lost their lives on Texas roads. Sadly, it’s very common for drivers to fail to yield the right-of-way to oncoming motorcyclists at intersections. If drivers are driving aggressively, driving distracted, driving while impaired, or driving fatigued, they’re more prone to disobeying traffic laws and colliding into other motorists.
