Summer Season: More Potential for Motorcycle Accidents
The summer is here. The weather is getting better and more people are likely to enjoy recreational activities, including riding motorcycles from one destination to the other. While this is often a freeing experience for motorcyclists, it’s also imperative to recognize the potential dangers associated with it as well.
Many motorcyclists are confident in their ability to ride safely. However, it’s impossible for you to predict the actions of others and when negligence is involved, it is unfortunately the motorcyclist who suffers the majority of the damage.
More Motorcycles Doesn’t Mean More Diligence
For many of those riding motorcycles, you deserve to receive the same respect as other motorists on the road. The opportunities you deserve, though, are not always given and there are many motorists who don’t lookfor motorcyclists or give them the necessary space to operate safely.
With the summer weather and more motorcyclists on the road, the potential for damage is increased and those on motorcycles can suffer significant injuries as a result of negligence. This is because motorcyclists are susceptible to ejection from their motorcycle.

Teen Drivers On the Road
Motorcyclists are already in danger when experienced drivers don’t pay them the respect they deserve. When you factor in inexperienced and younger teen drivers, the potential for harm increases due to distractions and more.
The summer months are often referred to as the 100 deadliest days because the total number of accident-related deaths increases, especially the numbers involving teen drivers. It’s important to remain aware of your surroundings and if you notice a young driver distracted, avoid getting near them.
