Car drivers are the most common cause of motorbike accidents

In a Government study on motorcycle accidents the statistics have found that the most common cause of injuries to motorcyclists in the England and Wales is car drivers failing to look properly.

Around 70% of motorbike accidents take place at a junction and around 80% of these incidents involve a car as the other vehicle.

Around 25% of accidents involving a motorcycle are caused by car drivers failing to look properly, whereas only around 15% of accidents are caused by motorcyclists. The statistics show that more often than not, motorcyclists are not at fault for accidents.

The THINK! campaign by the UK government targets common causes of motorbike accidents. THINK! advises car drivers to do the following:

THINK! take longer to look for bikes:
Look carefully for motorbikes when you pull out at a junction. If you’re approaching a junction, look out for motorcyclists pulling out too.

Keep your distance
Driving too close can intimidate a less experienced motorcyclist.

Check for bikes when changing lanes
A motorcyclist may be in the space you want to move into, or moving into it fast. Remember your blind spot.”
