Common Misconceptions About Motorcycles

This post is written on behalf of Law Offices of Mauro Fiore, Jr.

California motorcyclists like you often have to fight unfairly in the court to defend yourselves from accusations that you were at fault for the accident. We at the Law Offices of Mauro Fiore, Jr., work to help dispel the common myths surrounding motorcycles that add to this stigma.

First and foremost, motorcycles may be fast, but that doesn’t mean they’re fast to stop. You may find yourself facing accusations of not braking on time, when in reality, your reaction time is actually limited much more than people who don’t ride motorcycles would know. The same thing applies to sharp turns or driving on uneven roads. While others may think you can zip through easily, you know the reality is quite different and that uneven road can easily knock you off balance and send you sliding.

Motorcyclists also get a bad reputation for being difficult to see, but this often isn’t your fault, either. Even if you wear all of the appropriate safety gear, there’s no way to ensure that a driver will check their blind spots thoroughly for you before making lane changes or other decisions that can cause you harm.

Unfortunately, the reality of motorcycle accidents means that you as a motorcyclist will often be at the highest risk of damage while also being one of the least understood in a court case. In order to better prepare for your day in court, you may wish to visit the link and read up on motorcycle accidents. You can use that knowledge to fight to protect yourself from being saddled with unfair convictions.
