Lane Splitting Motorcycle Accidents

I’m Ed Smith, a Motorcycle Accident Attorney in Napa. When a motorcycle rides between two lanes of slowly moving or stopped cars, typically in a traffic jam, it is known as lane splitting. They did this in Mission Impossible 5 going at high speeds on the highway in North Africa!

Road Hazards For Motorcycle Riders

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Motorcycle Accident Attorney. One of the common causes of motorcycle accidents is road hazards.
