Heat exhaustion and motorcycle crashes

A motorcyclist could become involved in an accident on the road for a number of reasons. Negligent drivers are particularly concerning, as well as drivers who are distracted or do not pay attention to the road carefully. During the summertime, extreme heat is another potential concern that can lead to a motorcycle accident. When a motorcyclist suffers from heat-related fatigue, they may be more likely to become involved in a collision that claims their life or results in a devastating injury. If you are planning on riding a motorcycle during very hot weather, it is important to be vigilant and watch out for signs that you are suffering from heat exhaustion.

There are different ways in which extreme heat can cause a motorcycle crash. For example, it may make a motorcyclist pass out and fall off of their motorcycle or have difficulty concentrating and focusing on the road, leading to a crash. Motorcyclists are especially vulnerable to some of the effects of extreme weather, as opposed to those who are riding in a car with air conditioning and protection from the sun. Some motorcyclists may continue to ride even though they are suffering from fatigue, which can be especially dangerous.

As a motorcyclist, you face many different hazards when you take to the road. It is important to be vigilant at all times and aware of the threats you face. If you head over to our section on crash injuries, you can read more material which is related to motorcycle collision injuries.
