Sadly, incidents like these indicate some of the major issues with motorcycle safety, especially when they share the road with other drivers. The woman driving the car claimed to have not seen the officer, which is a common complaint of drivers when motorcycles are involved in accidents. Cases like this sometimes bring up criminal and civil charges, as many drivers do not take the time to look closely for motorcycles and their vulnerable riders. It is imperative that drivers take their time and look carefully when driving, especially to check for hard to see drivers and riders like in the case above. Driving at full attention can mean the difference between a major collision and injuries, and a safe ride home for all around you.
