There are a number of common car driver errors that lead to fatal results for motorcyclists:
- A car cuts the motorcycle off in traffic by making a sudden left hand turn in front of the cycle
- The car swerves to change lanes
- A car — or worse, a truck — passes too close to the cycle or crowds it off the road and onto a sandy, potholed safety lane, causing the bike to skid out
- The car driver “just didn’t see” the motorcycle and ran into it
These may be common occurrences, but they aren’t right. Car drivers have a duty to pay attention to the road, to driving condition, and to other drivers around them.
