Motorcycle Accidents in Texas
Studies show that 16 percent of all vehicle accidents that occur in Texas involve motorcycles. When passenger vehicles strike motorcyclists at intersections, it’s often because distracted drivers fail to yield the right of way to oncoming motorcyclists. When drivers are also being aggressive and trying to rush through traffic, they also run the risk of accidentally harming motorcyclists. Accidents also occur when drivers don’t check their surroundings before switching lanes. It’s not uncommon for motorcyclists to rest in blind spots. Therefore, to avoid an increase in motorcycle accidents, all drivers must be extremely alert and conscious of their surroundings at all times.
