Main causes of motorcycle accidents:

  • Drivers should always be careful about their blind spot before the change of lanes, mainly on crowded roads. Drivers should always utilize their turning signals, but unfortunately, the drivers may not always be conscious and they tend to not pay attention and just rely on the mirrors before changing lanes. 
  • Head-on collisions are the major cause of motorcycle riders’ fatalities. When this happens, the car leaves its lane and merges into oncoming traffic. The motorcycle driver must make a split-second decision about whether to strike the automobile or avoid it. Both options are risky and result in serious and hazardous injury to the motorcycle rider.
  • No matter what type of vehicle you are riding but driving while you are intoxicated is very dangerous and risky. It not only puts your life in danger but also danger to the drivers who are driving with you on the same road.
  • Speeding and reckless driving are very common nowadays, motorcyclists always prefer driving fast, which increases the risk rate of motorcyclists. Motorcycles are already unsafe due to the absence of their proper structural supports and orientation, but if you are exceeding the speed limit, any accident faced would be deadly.


Riding a motorcycle is always risky due to its structural orientation. And in addition, if you become more careless then the possibility of accident increases. A speeding motorcycle and drunk driver of a motorcycle are at high risk of dangerous accidents as there are many other vehicles present on the road. They lose control of their motorcycle, inability to slow down in traffic, and are not capable of detecting slippery surfaces. Poor road conditions like lanes which are uneven, potholes on the road, and standing water can also cause a deadly road injury to a motorcyclist. As an owner of a motorcycle, you should always be aware of all the factors and ride your motorbike safely to avoid accidents.
