The most common accident with motorcycles happens when they are going straight and a car is turning across traffic to turn left. They hit the rider. Not crazy riders, just regular people who like being on a bike.

People in cars can sometimes be unpredictable and unsafe, too. Sometimes they don’t do shoulder checks. Sometimes they cut in front of you. They often don’t leave enough room when following a rider. Sometimes they drop stuff from their car or truck on the road, the worst is furniture. Texting and driving, eating and driving, putting on makeup and driving… I could go on. Bad driving habits that many people in cars have seen, too. Riders have to be hyper aware at all times and most are not riding erratically. At least, not any more than many car drivers.
