The most common cause of motorcycle accidents is other drivers. Motorcycles can be harder to see and new studies on brain activity suggest some drivers may not even be aware of motorcycles when they are directly in the line of vision. Some safety precautions – including loud pipes and brighter clothing – can help prevent this particular cause of accidents, but even the most caution of riders is at increased risk when sharing the road with cars and trucks.
