Motorcycle Accident In California
With engines and speed much like an automobile, motorcycles can often seem more at home on California roadways than your common bicyclist, for example. Unlike a car, truck, or SUV driver, however, there is usually little more than a helmet to protect motorcyclists during a car crash. According to the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), 4992 motorcyclists were injured or killed in LA county alone in 2017. How does this happen?
What Causes Motorcycle Accidents?
If you obey traffic laws and wear your safety gear, are you really at risk for a motorcycle accident? The answer to that is a resounding yes. You may be able to control your motorcycle, but you can’t control the drivers around you. What may be only a little fender bender between two cars can easily turn fatal for a motorcyclist involved in a car collision.
