Motorbike Crash Brings Miles Of Traffic Jam On M5

June 27, 2018

Miles of tailbacks have been caused on the M5 motorway following a motorbike crash.

Often experienced motorcyclists ride defensively, knowing that many motorists fail to think of motorcycles on the road when making a manoeuvre. A momentary lapse of concentration behind the wheel can lead to catastrophic results to a motorbike rider.

A common motorcycle crash scenario is where a motorist either pulls or “edges” out of a side road or crosses over a dividing white line. In anticipation of a crash the rider swerves to avoid a potential injury, sometimes the avoidance works, but on other occasions the rider will not avoid the crash and will still be injured by departing from the bike or hitting something else.
