The vast majority of drivers of cars, trucks and buses are likely to say that, in their opinion, accidents involving motorcycles are because of aggressive bike riders. They talk about riders who weave in and out of traffic, tailgate and seem to take over the roadway because they ride in large groups.
That’s what they say; it’s just not true.
The truth is that the vast majority of motorcycle accidents are caused because bikes are smaller in size than all other vehicles on the road.
Rather than pointing the finger at motorcycles, complaining about the noise they make or the exhaust they put out, drivers of cars and trucks can do a better job at sharing the road. Look in your mirrors. Check your blind spots. Consider motorcycles when making turns or merging onto a roadway. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.
