What Is the Peak Period for Motorcycle Accidents in California?

Many people enjoy motorcycle riding, especially at the end of a busy week. It’s important to remember that certain times of the day are more dangerous. You know that as a motorcycle rider, you are more exposed to elements and road hazards. The increased risk during rush hour traffic, combined with this exposure, can make motorcycles more dangerous.

Why Weekend Crashes Are More Common

According to a study conducted recently, the majority of serious motorcycle accidents occur on Sundays and Saturdays. The most dangerous time of the weekend for motorcyclists is the Sunday afternoon between 3 pm and 6 pm. A significant number of weekend crashes occur during this time. This is due to a variety of factors. Weekends are often more congested, as people enjoy their free time. Accidents are more likely to occur when there are more vehicles on the roads. As daylight starts to fade between 3 pm and 6 pm, visibility can also decrease, making it more difficult for drivers to see motorcyclists.

Wearing reflective clothing will help you be more visible to other motorists and keep you safe. Defensive driving can help you avoid unexpected situations, and react appropriately to other drivers’ behaviors.

A Weekend Ride Can Be Risky

Prioritizing safe riding, particularly during times of greater risk, such as weekends, is important. Even if you are a safe driver, the actions of other drivers cannot be controlled. Distracted drivers, those who fail to signal, and reckless drivers can cause serious accidents. You have the right to seek justice if you are in a situation where you were hit by a negligent motorist.

In California, you can get compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. This situation can be complex for those who have been injured. Consult an attorney who specializes in personal injury. They can help you to understand your rights and collect the evidence needed to prove your case.
