Factors That Could Lead to Head-On Motorcycle Collisions
Head-on collisions can happen for a variety of reasons, including:
- Low Visibility – Low visibility is one of the most common causes of motorcycle head-on collisions. When motorists have a difficult time seeing the road ahead of them or the vehicles around them, they are at great risk of serious accidents. With poor visibility, it can be easy to drift from the road or lane and collide with oncoming vehicles.
- Poor Road Conditions – When a roadway is in poor conditions, there is a greater risk of head-on accidents. As a result of a defective road design or deteriorated pavement, vehicles can lose control of their vehicles and get into a head-on collision.
- Intoxicated Driving – A leading cause of head-on collisions is driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. When a driver is intoxicated, he or she may be unable to concentrate on the road ahead, have a diminished response time, suffer from blurred vision, and his or her perception may be impaired.
- Driving While Distracted – Driving while distracted is dangerous and sadly, many drivers fail to recognize the consequences of it. Like intoxicated driving, driving while distracted is also a leading cause of head-on motorcycle accidents. Common forms of distraction include: Texting, Playing with the stereo, Looking up directions, and Talking with other passengers.
