Even when cooler temperatures creep in, residents in Arizona and other southern states enjoy fairly warm or mild weather during the winter months. This means that motorcyclists are seen on the roadways throughout the year. Even though they have a commonplace, some motorists in Arizona fail to check their surroundings and take note of motorcyclists traveling around them. Whether it is due to distractions, failure to check blind spots, or some other type of recklessness, when a motorcycle accident occurs, the results can be catastrophic.
Despite the fact that motorcyclists are taught to be aware of their surroundings and how to handle their vehicle on the roadways, this training can only go so far. When a negligent driver fails to take note of a motorcyclist traveling nearby, a collision could ensue.
