The movement’s original intent was a way to show solidarity towards non-violence. Unfortunately, it has now become a constant parade of reckless ATV riders and motorcyclists performing wheelies and dangerous maneuvers, placing other motorists in danger.

Are You Receiving The Most In Compensation?

When two vehicles get into a crash on a roadway, the first question the insurance companies will have is who is at fault. The second question that may come up is how much of the client’s injuries were their own fault. This often comes up in motorcycle cases. People love the freedom of motorcycles but motorcycles come with a high risk of injury and death. One Port St. Lucie man found this out. He was driving a motorcycle down Southwest Bayshore Drive when an SUV performed a U-turn and crashed into the motorcycle. The driver of the SUV was unharmed, but the motorcycle driver was not wearing a helmet. He later died at the hospital. Now the family has opened a GoFundMe page to raise money for the final expenses.

Florida Motorcycle Accident Attorney: Car Drivers to Blame

Studies done by the NHTSA show that motorcyclists are 35 times more likely to get into an accident than car drivers. If you’re a rider, that’s an alarming statistic, and you should absolutely be doing everything in your power to decrease your chances of experiencing a crash and getting hurt. Professional safety organizations and regular people seem to agree, and if you take a quick look around, most of the advice (and blame) out there seems to be pointed at riders. Even the NHTSA’s page on motorcycle accidents prominently features safe riding programs, studies on why motorcyclists should wear helmets, and a call for sober riding. All of this is good advice for riders to heed, but it makes it seem like motorcyclists have sole responsibility in preventing accidents. However, a...Read More
