The statistics have shown for many years now that intersections are very dangerous places for motorcycle riders. All across America and on Georgia’s roads and highways, bikers are most vulnerable when traveling within an intersection or when making a left turn across oncoming traffic.
Atlanta motorcycle injury lawyer Charles Scholle and the Scholle Law team, represents bikers after a motorcycle accident. If you are involved in a left turn or intersection motorcycle crash, you can benefit from the help of experienced legal counsel. You need a strong and supportive advocate for your rights and your medical treatment.
If you are a biker, the best protection you can get is knowledge and training when traveling on your bike. One of the best ways that motorcyclists can protect themselves in an intersection on Georgia’s roads and highways is to drive defensively. But other vehicles must also share the road with bikes and pay attention to the road for these smaller and lighter vehicles with just as much right to be on the road.
Often intersection crashes with bikes happen because another driver does not notice or see the bike. Statistics show that many crashes between motorcycles and other vehicles are due to the negligence of the other driver, not the biker.
The researchers at the famed Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, many of whom are biking enthusiasts, are working on safety technologies to assist motorcyclists handle situations such as intersections and left turns. About one in seven fatalities on America’s roads are motorcyclists and the goal is to reduce that number.
These new technologies being studied include vehicle systems that, once equipped on cars and motorcycles, would provide vehicle awareness to both drivers by transmitting a basic safety message so that connected vehicles would be aware of a bike and can be forewarned of a potential accident before it happens. Some applications being considered include blind spot warnings, left turn assistance and intersection movement assistance. This could help with making motorcycles more conspicuous to other drivers.
