Motorcycle season is here

Spring has sprung which means drivers will begin seeing an increased number of motorcyclists on the highways. As is the case almost every year, we are already finding reports of accidents involving motorcycles. On Wednesday, April 3rd, one took place on the Lloyd Expressway westbound, near Highway 41, at approximately 8:30 a.m.

Motorcycle safety review for riders and other drivers

Motorists driving other vehicles have just as much responsibility in keeping motorcycle riders safe as the motorcyclists do themselves. With springtime just around the corner, the number of motorcycles on Indiana roads will increase substantially, making this the perfect time to review some safety measures that can be taken by both parties.

Government assesses motorcycle accident risks

Motorcycling is liberating and exciting, but riding comes at the cost of having the highest risk of injury among all vehicle users in this country. A recent National Transportation Safety Board report analyzed the most recent data and reported on the greatest risks associated with motorcycle accidents.

Those injured in motorcycle accidents deserve answers

It's true that motorcyclists can be partially, or fully, to blame when it comes to injuries. However, this is not true of all motorcycle accident injuries. Oftentimes, another driver's negligence plays a role in how a motorcyclist became injured in a crash. If you are wondering what led to your own or a loved one's motorcycle accident injuries, you can seek answers.

Should you wear a motorcycle helmet?

As you might imagine, riding a motorcycle can be dangerous. Even the best riders cannot predict the behavior of passenger car drivers. The potential ignorance and recklessness of others on the road make motorcyclists 26 times more likely to die in an accident than those in a passenger car, according to the Advocates For Highway & Auto Safety.

How other drivers can stay safe around motorcycles

Many drivers in the Evansville, Indiana, area have probably seen signs for campaigns designed to warn people to be on the look out for motorcyclists and "share the road." These signs offer good advice, of course, especially since a collision with another vehicle, or even a near miss, leaves a motorcyclist highly vulnerable to serious injuries.
