Speeding drivers and motorcycle accidents

Motorcyclists face countless threats on the road, many of which have been covered in detail on our blog. In this blog, we will take a closer look at speeding and the different reasons why this behavior is so dangerous, especially when it comes to motorcycle accidents. Sadly, many drivers Pittsburgh and other parts of Pennsylvania frequently go over the speed limit and show no regard for the safety of motorcyclists (or anyone else on the road, for that matter).

Sometimes, drivers reach excessive speeds, whether they are competing in an unlawful street race or they want to show off to someone else riding in the vehicle. In other instances, someone may drive over the speed limit because they want to get to work on time or simply do not pay attention to their behavior behind the wheel. Either way, speeding can make it more difficult for a driver to avoid a motorcyclist if they lose control of their vehicle and it may also make it harder for them to see motorcyclists on the road.

When a motorcyclist is struck by a driver who is traveling at a high rate of speed, the consequences can be disastrous. In many accidents, motorcyclists have lost their lives and their families have had to suffer through the loss of their loved one who passed away far too soon. Even when a motorcyclist manages to survive, a high-speed collision could leave them permanently disabled. From lifelong immobility to major hospital bills and physical pain, the ramifications that come with these crashes are often devastating.
