Cars Cause Most Accidents Between Motorcycles and Automobiles
As a motorcycle accident lawyer in Clearwater, we see a number of collisions between bikes and cars. A recent study by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), found that a majority of car vs. motorcycle collisions were actually caused by the negligence of the car driver in contrast to popular opinion. It is a common belief that the reckless conduct of those on sports bikes (i.e., “crotch rockets” ) are representative of the general behavior exhibited by most bikers. This could not be further from the truth.
In fact, the leading factor in such collisions is the car or truck driver failing to yield the right of way to a much smaller motorcycle. I previously wrote a very detailed article on the most common cause of motorcycle accidents.
