Each year, as the weather starts to warms up, residents in Iowa see more and more motorcycles on the roadways. Although this is common during the warmer months, these small vehicles can still go unnoticed by larger vehicles. This is why it is crucial that drivers double-check and even triple-check their blind spots and mirrors before changing lanes or making a turn. If a driver fails to do so or is distracted or speeding, they could collide with a motorcyclist. Even if they are wearing a helmet and protective gear, a motorcycle accident often results in catastrophic injuries.
