Common Motorcycle Accidents
Individuals who are riding a motorcycle and who become involved in an accident are more likely to become involved in a fatal accident.
Both drivers and motorcycle riders have a responsibility to keep everyone on the roads safe. Safety experts have documented the most common motorcycle accidents, including:
- Left turning cars
- Poorly maintained roads
- Changing lanes
By remaining vigilant, giving motorcycle riders sufficient space and ensuring that riders wear safety gear, Illinois motorists can reduce motorcycle accidents and fatalities.
Illinois does not require riders to use helmets, and this contributes to the severity of the injuries experienced by motorcycle riders in Illinois.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that thousands of lives are saved through the use of helmets.
