Why do motorcycle accidents happen?
In 2013, 47 per cent of other motor vehicles involved in accidents failed to look properly as well as 16 per cent of motorcyclists. This is commonly referred to as the ‘looked but failed to see’ problem in road safety literature or SMIDSY. This is particularly common where motorcyclists are hard to see and for motorists to fail to notice them when looking around the road. The majority of drivers (89 per cent) agreed that motorcyclists are more vulnerable in every day driving situations than any other road users.
The second most common contributory factor assigned to both motorcyclists and other vehicles was ‘failed to judge other person’s path or speed.’ In 2013, 15 per cent of motorcyclists in accidents failed to judge other person’s path or speed, in comparison to 19 per cent of other vehicles.
