Top causes of Florida motorcycle accidents
Updated: Feb 19, 2020
First of all, the single most common maneuver by at-fault drivers that cause motorcycle accidents in Florida is a Left-Hand Turn by a motorist in front of a motorcycle. This single maneuver causes nearly HALF of all motorcycle accidents in Florida.
For whatever the reason may be (distracted driver, texting & driving, motorcycle outline much smaller than a car, etc.), such maneuvers happen over and over again. And they don't just happen at red light intersections. In fact, many such accidents occur on a side road where the car is waiting to make a left turn onto another side road.
It is important to remember that other drivers may not see you coming, and you must be vigilant at all times, especially during a holiday period like Thanksgiving. Do NOT trust that the car will see you approaching.
