Motorcycle Accidents Involving Failure To Yield

As any seasoned biker knows, just because you have the right of way does not mean you're safe. Many motorcycle accidents involve failure to yield by an inattentive driver.

Unfortunately, drivers in Southwest Florida don't always treat motorcyclists with the respect and attention they deserve. They often fail to look for bikers before making maneuvers. Sometimes drivers can't even see properly — a problem made worse by difficult weather conditions or night driving.

Bikers are especially vulnerable when drivers:

  • Change lanes
  • Approach stop signs or traffic lights
  • Turn left
  • Pull out of a driveway
  • Fail to check blind spots
  • Tailgate

Busy intersections are a common site of failure-to-yield accidents. Drivers may be in a hurry, or they may be too distracted to look closely before entering the intersection. Their carelessness leaves far too many bikers' lives in shambles.
