Understanding the increase in motorcycle accidents

There are many concerns for safety on the roadways, and when drivers in Iowa travel, they should consider ways to keep themselves and others safe. Despite these efforts, some drivers are not able to avoid dangers on the road. For example, motorcyclists have limited available safety features. Even when they wear a helmet, serious and fatal injuries could occur in a motorcycle crash. Regardless of how careful the rider is, a negligent driver is often to blame for a fatal motorcycle crash.

During the summer months, residents in Iowa often see an increase in motorcycles on the roadway. These small vehicles are able to maneuver quickly and could easily go undetected, due to the blind spots of larger vehicles. Whether it is during the daytime or nighttime hours, drivers should always be aware of their surroundings. That also means keeping an eye out for motorcyclists. Double-checking before making a turn or lane change could reduce the chances of a motorcycle accident.

Motorcycles are not an uncommon sight on Iowa's roadways. This is most often observed during the warmer summer months because motorcyclists usually avoid traveling on these vehicles when it is cold outside.

Even when these are utilized, injuries and death could follow a motorcycle accident. This makes it especially important that other drivers are aware of these small vehicles on the road. Moreover, motorcyclists should practice safe driving such as not speeding, signaling turns and not traveling closely to other vehicles.
