Texas Motorcycle Collisions
Motorcycles are cheaper and more fun to operate than passenger vehicles; however, they can also be more dangerous. On average, The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that over 5,000 motorcyclists lost their lives in 2019. The most common reasons motorcycle accidents occur across the nation include:
- Speeding: Traveling at speeds under or over the speed limit reduces drivers’ ability to safely react in the case of a collision or unsafe circumstance on the road that may lead to a crash. It can also increase the severity of an accident when it does happen.
- Intoxication: Operating any vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs impairs judgment, motor skills, and vision and reduces reaction times, all of which are essential during the operation of any motor vehicle.
- Distracted driving: Both the drivers of passenger vehicles and motorcyclists may become distracted by their cell phones while behind the wheel, increasing the chance for a crash to occur.
Driver negligence is a common issue seen across the nation and demonstrated by numerous American drivers on a regular basis. This is a dangerous problem that leads to millions of injuries and tens of thousands of deaths every year. Despite the obvious fact that driving while under the influence, at unsafe speeds, or intoxicated is very unsafe and can cause accidents, people continue to engage in these reckless and careless behaviors.
