Motorcycles are an excellent way to get around town. However, without the external protection that cars offer, this form of transportation has a high risk of injury. To keep yourselves and other motorists safe, it’s important to be aware of the most common motorcycle crashes that occur.

The Most Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Poor Lane Changing

While motorcycles are required to have turn signals, they are not nearly as easy to see as car signal lights, which is why many riders learn hand signals to let other motorists know they’ll be switching lanes. However, if a motorcyclist fails to signal properly, they may find themselves colliding with another driver.

On the other hand, when a car is switching lanes, the driver may not be able to see the motorcycle in their blind spot and hit that motorist.

Lane Splitting

This tends to happen more often when vehicles are sitting in stand-still traffic. This is when a motorcyclist will drive between cars in an attempt to get out of traffic sooner. While this action is technically legal in Texas, it is also extremely dangerous and can put yourself and other drivers at risk of collision and injury.

Opening Car Doors

A number of motorcycle accidents can occur if drivers open their street-side doors in the way of oncoming traffic, causing a motorcycle to collide with it. Car drivers need to take precautions when opening their car doors in busy streets.


The faster a motorcyclist drives over the speed limit, the more likely they are to wind up in an accident since they will not be able to stop as suddenly to avoid a collision.
