Most North Carolina bike crashes involve other vehicles

Motorcycles are very popular in North Carolina, as they provide riders with excellent views of the natural beauty in the state as well as speed and convenience in traffic jams around Charlotte and Raleigh. With the large number of bikes on the roads, drivers owe themselves and others to keep an eye out for the vehicles.

What are the most common types of motorcycle accidents?

There are a lot of things, from weather to traffic, that can spoil a good day's ride. But nothing ends it like an accident. There are few types of motorcycle accidents from which a driver and passenger can walk away whole, so prevention matters even more than it does for car and truck drivers.

A careless or distracted driver could be the end of a biker. However, not all motorcycle wrecks involve other vehicles.
