One simple mistake on a bike can lead to a serious Daytona Beach motorcycle accident. You could be left unable to earn a living and facing a mountain of medical bills you can’t pay.
Three Common Reasons Why Motorcycle Accidents Occur
Though not all motorcycle accidents can be avoided, knowing some of the most common causes can help save your life. Three of the most common include:
- Alcohol. Motorcycle accidents involving intoxication occur more than you might think. Riding intoxicated is more difficult than driving a car, and both should always be avoided. Arrange a ride home if you have been drinking.
- Other motorists. The most common reason motorcycle accidents occur is other motorists. Their inattentiveness can lead to you becoming seriously injured. In addition, since motorists oftentimes have a difficult time seeing bikers, make sure to never become lost in another vehicle’s blind spots.
- Conditions of the road. Road conditions, including loose gravel, bumps, and uneven roads can wreak havoc on bikers. Always maintain a safe and prudent speed, and beware of unsafe road conditions.
