Avoiding Motorcycle Accidents: A Car Turns Left in Front of You

Riding a motorcycle is exhilarating and dangerous. Other vehicles on the road don't always give you the respect and attention you deserve as a rider. And a crash on a motorcycle can lead to serious injuries. In this series of blogs, we'll examine how you can ride safer and reduce your chances of dying or suffering catastrophic injuries.

The most common type of motorcycle accident happens when a car turns left in front of a motorcycle. This is often because the driver of the car is searching the road ahead for other cars and just doesn't register that you and your motorcycle are oncoming traffic.

You can be on the lookout for this danger and prepared to take evasive action.

  • Be aware of gaps in traffic near intersections, driveways, and parking lots where a driver could turn.
  • Watch drivers sitting in the turn lane at intersections. Their wheels will give you the first indication that they are turning.
  • Slow down and cover your brakes.
  • Prepare for evasive action, noting any other vehicles around you.

Although you may be able to see an inattentive driver and compensate for their mistakes, you may only have time to slow down and lessen the forces of impact. Being able to anticipate the collision and slow down may save you from severe injuries or death.
