What are the primary causes of motorcycle crashes?

Statistics show that there are three main reasons motorcyclists crash. One of the more common reasons they do is because they're reportedly hard for motorists to be able to detect either when alone or mixed in with other oncoming traffic. Another reason is because of some type of rider error. The third reason has to do with bike defects or failures.

An alleged drunk driver strikes, kills a Linda Vista motorcyclist

A San Diego motorcyclist died when he became trapped under a Linda Vista man's Nissan Altima right before 6:45 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 30. The incident occurred at the intersection between Linda Vista Road and Genesee Avenue, in the northern San Diego suburb, some 35 miles south of Vista, California.

Why motorcycle accidents happen

Statistics compiled in 2013 by the National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA) showed that in the United States as a whole that year, some 4,668 died in fatal motorcycle accidents. This was down from 320 fatalities from the previous year. That same year, at least 88,000 motorcyclists were injured in crashes. This number marked a decrease by over 5,000 from the previous year.

The most common injuries associated with motorcycle crashes

Operating a motorcycle is among one of the most dangerous ways of getting around town. As the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) puts it, operating a motorcycle not only requires more driver coordination, but significantly more skill to operate one as well.
