Texas intersections are high-risk areas. Even if there are traffic lights or stop signs to help regulate traffic, a driver who is distracted, intoxicated or reckless places everyone in the vicinity at risk for serious injury. While the exact cause of a motorcycle accident that recently occurred is not yet known, the incident is an example of how dangerous crossroads can be.
Motorcyclists in Texas and across the country need more skills and coordination than drivers of automobiles. This is particularly true given the road hazards with which bikers often have to cope. Roads that pose little or no threat to drivers of four-wheeled vehicles could cause motorcycle accidents with devastating consequences.
Dallas motorcyclists who ride in bad weather will likely be cautious when they take to the roads. Bikers do not have any of the various types of protection that drivers of automobiles have, and in motorcycle accidents that involve other vehicles, motorcycle riders are typically worse off. In most cases, there is nothing more than a helmet and a leather riding suit between a biker and the road surface.
