Accident Scenarios: U-Turn

When a car does a U-turn in the road, it can present a danger to other road users, including motorcyclists, in several ways:

  • Limited visibility: The turning vehicle may obstruct the view of other drivers or riders, making it difficult to anticipate the vehicle’s movements and adjust their own driving accordingly.
  • Unpredictable movements: A vehicle making a U-turn may suddenly change direction, making it challenging for other road users to anticipate where the vehicle is heading, and respond accordingly.
  • Increased risk of collision: As the turning vehicle crosses over into the opposite lane of traffic, there is an increased risk of collision with vehicles traveling in that lane, including motorcyclists.
  • Reduced reaction time: Motorcyclists may have less time to react to a vehicle making a U-turn.
  • Increased risk for head-on collisions: If a driver misjudges the speed or distance of oncoming traffic, they may turn in front of a motorcyclist or other vehicle, causing a head-on collision.

Overall, it is essential for all road users to exercise caution and be aware of their surroundings, especially when encountering a vehicle making a U-turn. Motorcyclists should always maintain a safe following distance and be prepared to react quickly if necessary to avoid a collision.

100% Better

Andrew Dalton took charge and was efficient & sympathetic from our first phone call to White Dalton to the case conclusion. We were at our wits’ end by the lack of communication & progress from the solicitors originally appointed by our insurance company.
