Drivers Making Abrupt Lane Changes Into Motorcyclists
Below are some common reasons that account for unsafe lane changes and may result in an unsafe lane changing accident:
- Weaving in and out of traffic
- Driving with road rage
- Failure to use signals to inform other drivers of lane changes
- Aggressively forcing one’s way into another lane
Impact of Unsafe Lane Changes and Motorcycle Injuries
Motorcycle Injuries occur when other drivers fail to recognize the laws of the road. When other drivers try to partake in unsafe lane changes, motorcyclists can suffer severe injuries and even death. Here are some of the injuries that motorcycle riders can suffer:
- Closed head injuries
- Open wounds to the head
- Severe brain damage
- Permanent paralysis
- Severed limbs
- External and internal bleeding
- Severe lacerations
- Road Rash
- Fractured Arms and Legs
- Broken Ribs
It is important for drivers to regard their duty of care seriously on the road. Drivers owe all other drivers, including motorcycle riders, a duty of care to act as a reasonable person on the road. This responsibility includes performing as a safe driver and respecting other drivers’ right to use the road. We often encourage parents to teach their children to look for motorcycle riders instead of slug-bugs. This will in courage people to become more aware of motorcycles while on the road.
