When an accident happens, it can leave many still feeling the effects for several months afterward. Motorcycle accidents, in particular, can be rather devastating, as these vehicles don’t offer the same protections from the road that other motor vehicles have. In fact, a recent motorcycle and SUV collision sadly caused the rider to suffer fatal injuries.
As Texas finally warms up and enters the Spring season, many people are hitting the open road on motorcycles. With gorgeous weather also comes an increase in motorcycle accidents, and recent accidents are reminding Texans to share the roads safely.
There are many reasons someone might choose to ride a motorcycle, but even if you have never ridden one or never plan on riding one, you should always share the road with motorcycles. People who ride motorcycles have the same rights as people who drive other types of passenger vehicles, and everyone should work to make the roads safer for all types of motorists.
While many motorists are familiar with recalls in their cars from products like Takata’s airbags, many consumers are unaware of the dangers of recalled motorcycles and the rights they have as motorcycle owners.
