Motorcyclists can help keep themselves safe

Motorcyclists have few protections against an accident. Unlike cars -- which have airbags, steel and safety glass - motorcycles offer little in the way of protection. Motorcyclists must rely on their own skill and the attention of others in order to remain safe.

While Washington residents can suffer serious injuries in a car accident, a motorcycle accident comes with even bigger risks. Motorcycles do not provide the protection - including the structural enclosure, seatbelts, safety glass, air bags and more - that cars provide.

Washington senator proposes new motorcycle legislation

In Washington, motorcyclists are held to the same laws as every other driver. However, motorcycles are not like every other vehicle on the road. Their small size makes them susceptible to accidents. And, these vehicles offer little protection to the people who ride them. In some cases, treating motorcycles differently can help to save lives.

Do motorcyclists have to wear a helmet in Washington?

Motorcycles are a fun and economical way to travel. People not only enjoy the thrill of these bikes, but the excellent gas mileage as well. But, with these perks comes risk. Motorcycles are smaller and often ignored by larger cars and trucks. This can lead to motorcycle accidents. Because of lack of safety features on motorcycles, an accident can result in serious injuries or death for riders. Even minor accidents have the potential to cause serious damage.

Washington motorcyclists and the right to use the road

In the last few days of summer, many motorcyclists are out enjoying Seattle's roadways. Unfortunately, this isn't always the safest way to travel. These motorcycles are prone to motorcycle accidents due to the negligence of others. Motorcycles do not provide the protection that larger vehicles are afforded. In some cases, other drivers may feel like motorcycles are a distraction on the road. Motorcycles have a bad reputation, in some cases, for disregarding traffic rules. Therefore, some drivers may think that motorcyclists have a right to be on Washington's roadways.

Police find drug use in deadly motorcycle accident

Intoxicated drivers are a danger to everyone on the roadways. They have slower reaction times, have a harder time paying attention and make poor judgment calls. While anyone can be hurt by a person driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, motorcyclists are at an increased risk of serious injuries. As most Washington residents understand, motorcycles provide virtually no protection to their riders, and helmets can only go so far to keep people safe. Sadly, many motorcycle accidents are deadly.

Motorcyclist struck and injured by driver who failed to yield

Motorists understand the importance of remaining attentive while traveling on the roadway. Despite this, some drivers fail to uphold this duty. Distractions often cause a driver to remove his or her eyes from the road. Furthermore, negligent acts such as speeding, texting and failing to follow traffic signs and signals could create dangers. A negligent driver could easily cause a collision and leave an unsuspecting driver or passenger with serious injuries.

As a result, the motorcycle hit the car. After the initial collision both the car and the motorcycle left the roadway.

Cars and trucks are not the only things on Washington state roadways. Pedestrians and bicyclists also frequent the streets and roads of Seattle as they move from place to place. Drivers need to understand that pedestrians have just as much right to use the roads as cars. However, pedestrians are not blessed with the protection of the steel and glass that drivers are. Therefore, when an accident occurs pedestrians are much more likely than drivers to suffer serious injuries.
