Motorcyclists in Pennsylvania sometimes get a bad reputation. People buy into the pop-culture image of the motorcycle gangs. People think about motorcyclists and think of lawbreaking, speeding, reckless and out-of-control riders. However, the reality is very different from this image. Most motorcyclists follow traffic rules and are just trying to safely enjoy an activity they love. Many people rely on motorcycles as their sole form of transportation. They use these bikes to move from one place to another and just want to get to their destination safely.
Despite the pop-culture stereotype, it is actually other drivers that are dangerous and reckless toward motorcyclists, in many cases. Often, motorcyclists are put at risk because these drivers fail to take proper precautions to watch for motorcycles on the road. It can be difficult see a motorcycle if a driver is otherwise distracted, under the influence or breaking traffic laws.
When a negligent driver causes a motorcycle accident, a motorcyclist should understand the person’s legal rights. Motorcyclists can take legal action against negligent drivers.
