Driving Safely Around Motorcycle Riders

Driving safely is important when sharing the road with motorcycles. Fifty-six percent of all motorcycle crashes involve another vehicle. Due to the motorcyclist’s lack of protection, many of these collisions result in death or serious injury to the biker.  There are many reasons motorcycle collisions happen, from motorists not respecting the rights of bikers to not seeing a motorcycle nearby. Being aware of motorcycles and taking appropriate steps to avoid an accident is an example of driving safely. Let’s explore some reasons accidents happen, and look for ways to maintain a safe roadway experience for everyone.

An Elk Grove motorcyclist fatality happened on November 18 in the late evening hours when a head-on collision occurred along Waterman Road. The motorcycle rider, age 29, suffered life-threatening injuries and was declared dead at the accident site by emergency medical personnel who had arrived at the scene. The driver of the vehicle that struck the man was also transported to a nearby hospital as a precautionary measure, according to a representative of the Elk Grove Police Department. I would like to take this opportunity to offer my condolences to the family and friends of the deceased man in their time of grief.

Motorcycle Lane Splitting May Be Legalized in Elk Grove in 2016
Motorcycle Lane Splitting May Be Legalized Soon

I’m Ed Smith, an Elk Grove Motorcycle Accident Lawyer. Motorcycle lane splitting has long been a part of Elk Grove and northern California life. As the freeways and roadways become congested with early morning and late afternoon rush hour traffic, Elk Grove motorcyclists seek to avoid traffic by practicing what is known as lane splitting. When engaging in lane splitting, a biker passes cars by driving in between lanes. Bikers use this method to pass slower cars or to completely bypass traffic.
