What unique dangers do motorcyclists face on the road?

Houston/Dallas/McAllen Texas Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Serving Texas

Riding down the highway with the wind in your hair while on a motorcycle is one way many people like to travel.

However, you should keep in mind that due to their size and how they operate, motorcycles can often have unique issues as well as benefits.

Tough handling

According to the United States Department of Transportation, operating a larger vehicle like a car or truck means that you handle it differently. The more contact your tires have with the road, the more likely you will not slip as you drive along, especially in wet or snowy weather.

A smaller vehicle, like a motorcycle, often faces danger from incoming traffic. Sudden turns can lead to skidding and an accident that would not cause the same danger in a truck or car.

Intense weather

While snow or rain may annoy you but not greatly impact how a car drives, a motorcycle can face a greater challenge trying to operate smoothly in this same kind of weather. With no windscreen, you may struggle to see further ahead on the road while on your motorcycle. Slick roads and wet handlebars can also cause issues while riding.

Dangerous debris

While many items scattered on the road may scrape a larger vehicle, those same items can lead to a deadly crash for a motorcycle. Rocks, old tire treads and any other scattered pieces of debris can cause you to fall off your motorcycle.

Since you do not have a seatbelt or airbags, you are naturally more at risk for injuries while on a motorcycle. Someone else's reckless driving can leave you struggling to recover from injuries, even if you took safety precautions.
