Motorcycle Accidents in Lee’s Summit
Sadly, the majority of motorcyclists are aware that most drivers often fail to notice a bike on the roadway. Some drivers are merely absent-minded, while others have no respect for motorcycles. An absence of driver awareness and flagrant disregard for the rules of the road are a threat to everybody on Missouri’s roads. Regrettably, these thoughtless driving behaviors are especially dangerous to anyone riding a motorcycle.
Although riding a motorcycle is an enjoyable method of transportation for many Missouri residents, not every journey has a happy ending. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration published a report stating that, in 2013, upwards of 4,668 people died and a further 88,000 sustained injuries nationwide as the result of their involvement in motorcycle collisions.
