Motorcycle riders have a bad reputation in the public for splitting lanes, driving recklessly, and speeding. However, the vast majority of motorcycle riders follow traffic laws, and only a small percentage of them ride in a dangerous manner that endangers other road users. Furthermore, motorcycle accidents are not always the rider’s fault. These accidents are sometimes caused by careless drivers. The following are some of the most common causes of personal injury motorcycle accidents:
- Driving while intoxicated.
- Negligence is defined as ignoring and breaking traffic laws.
- Driver errors, whether intentional or unintentional.
- Unsafe driving.
- Inability to yield.
It is not uncommon to come across angry or agitated drivers or motorcycle riders on the road.
