Many drivers have a brusque attitude toward motorcycles. Because they are smaller, many motorcycle riders are victims of being cut-off, other drivers coming in too close and other forms of discourtesy on the road. Motorcycle riders have all the same protection, and are entitled to the same basic courtesy as everyone else on the road.
Despite preconceived notions, many motorcycle accidents are caused by other motorists on the road rather than by motorcyclists themselves. Drivers have a duty to look for motorcyclists and safely share the road with them. Far too often, this does not occur, changing a great ride into a life altering event.
Driver behaviors which often contribute to motorcycle accidents include:
- Inattentive Driving
- Failing to Maintain a Proper Lookout
- Driving while intoxicated
- Texting while driving
- Following too closely
- Unsafe lane changes
- Reckless / aggressive driving

Even low-speed motorcycle accidents can result in severe injuries to riders. While drivers of cars and trucks are protected by seatbelts, air bags, and the metal frame of a motor vehicle, motorcyclists have little protection in the event of a crash or laydown of the bike, and as a result can suffer major physical trauma.
Motorcycle accidents can cause injuries such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Severe burns
- Broken bones
- Road rash
- Internal organ damage
