Pembroke Pines Limited Visibility Motorcycle Accidents

Limited visibility motorcycle accidents often occur on highways, since motorcycles can be hidden between cars, or behind a larger passenger van or large vehicle. However, studies show that as many as 70% of these collisions are in fact intersection accidents in Pembroke Pines and other communities. At intersections, larger vehicles, overgrown shrubs, and poor road design can all conspire to create poor visibility collisions that can lead to a crash. Of course, fog and poor weather conditions can occur just about anywhere, contributing to motorcycle accidents caused by visibility issues.

No matter how and where your accident has occurred, you will want legal advice if you have been injured.

Why do Limited Visibility Motorcycle Crashes Happen in Pembroke Pines and Other Communities?

Motorcycles and motor vehicles have design features intended to enhance visibility. From windshields to wiper blades, vehicles are designed to allow motorists to see the road around them clearly. If this is the case, why do visibility collisions happen?

The reality is that motorists overlook other vehicles and road users for a number of reasons:

  • Drunk driving
  • Mistaken assumptions about motorcyclists’ maneuverability
  • Distracted driving
  • Poor visibility on the roads
  • Fatigued driving
  • Weather conditions
  • Poor road design that blocks visibility
Intersection Accidents and Limited Visibility

Many poor visibility motorcycle accidents are intersection accidents. This is because intersections present many opportunities for a motorcyclist’s view of the road in front of them to be blocked. Poor road design can mean that narrow lanes and tall buildings prevent riders from seeing oncoming traffic or other types of dangers. Larger vehicles in front of a motorcyclist may also block the view. Finally, road maintenance issues such as overgrown trees or hedges can also prevent a motorcyclist from seeing oncoming traffic when making a turn. While poor visibility accidents can happen anywhere – including on long stretches of open highway – they can pose a special risk at intersections. These types of intersections accidents can also be more deadly as there are multiple larger vehicles typically surrounding the motorcyclist, creating the potential for crushing injuries or a multiple vehicle collision.
