Risks to Motorcyclists on the Las Vegas Strip

The Las Vegas strip attracts all and sundry – for many good reasons. The strip has something for everyone, and nothing evokes that Las Vegas feeling better than getting out for a ride on it. One thing the Las Vegas strip sees far too many of, however, is dangerous motorcycle accidents. If another motorist’s negligence leaves you injured in a motorcycle accident, don’t wait to consult with an experienced Las Vegas motorcycle accident lawyer

Expect the Unexpected

You can expect traffic on the strip to be intense at any time of the day or night. With heavy traffic comes unexpected surprises on the road. This can mean stopped traffic, stop and go traffic, a semi’s blown tire or other debris on the road, surprise maneuvers made by other motorists, pedestrians crossing against the lights, and much more. The bottom line is that when it comes to the unexpected, traffic on the strip has it, and motorcyclists are especially vulnerable.

The Rush Can Be Distracting

The rush of the strip can be distracting to drivers, which can leave those on motorcycles at greater risk of being injured in an accident caused by a distracted driver. Distracted drivers are dangerous drivers who don’t pay careful enough attention to the road ahead, and this includes not looking for and seeing motorcyclists in their midst.

Motorcyclists Are More Vulnerable

Motorcyclists are more vulnerable than other drivers are, to begin with – for all of the following reasons:

 

  • When you’re on your bike, you strike a lower profile, which makes it more difficult for other motorists to see you.
  • When you’re riding, you don’t have the protective metal shell of your car to help absorb the impact of an accident or to protect you from dangerous contact with the road in an accident.
  • A motorcycle can easily disappear in the blind spot of a larger vehicle, and if that motorist isn’t careful about checking his or her blind spots when changing lanes, it puts you at serious risk.
  • Motorists have a more difficult time gauging how far away motorcycles are, how quickly they are traveling, and what they are going to do next, which makes accidents in intersections more likely.

 

Regardless of the fact that you are naturally more vulnerable when you are on your bike, drivers are responsible for driving safely in relation to the circumstances they encounter, and this includes sharing the strip safely with motorcyclists like you.
