It is not uncommon to hear of a motorcyclist being involved in a road traffic accident with a car or a lorry. The two main dangers motorcyclists face in road traffic accidents where they are not at fault are
Drivers of cars and lorries often say that they did not see the motorcyclist when the road traffic accident happened. This may be because the motorcycle was in the vehicle’s blind spot. This is especially true of lorries as they have greater blind spots and therefore present more danger to the overtaking motorcycle.
The second danger to motorcyclists is cars pulling out of junctions. This road traffic accident also often happens because the driver of the car claims not to have seen the motorcycle. However, the cause of this is the failure of the car driver to look properly before pulling out. Another reason for this type of road traffic accident is that the driver of the car misjudges the speed of the motorcycle and pulls out of the junction causing a collision.
