Are Motorcycle Accidents Common In Maryland?
Hitting the road on a Harley, Honda, Yamaha, or Kawasaki is about convenience, freedom, and sometimes a sense of self-expression. You obey traffic laws and wear your safety gear. Do you really have to worry about an accident? The answer to that is a resounding yes.
With engines and speeds similar to a car, motorcycles can often seem more at home on our Maryland roadways than your typical bicyclist, for example. A passenger car, pickup truck, or SUV driver, however, has a lot more than a helmet, shield, and some padding to protect themselves during a car crash.
In 2019 alone, MDOT reported more than 1,200 motorcycle accidents.
What Causes Motorcycle Accidents With Cars?
While controlling your motorcycle might be second nature, you can’t control the drivers around you. What would amount to a small fender bender between two cars can easily turn fatal for a motorcyclist involved in a car crash. You also face unique challenges driving something like a Harley instead of a car or truck.
- Being Forced Off The Road

- Getting Rear-Ended
- Unsafe Lane Changes
- Driving Under The Influence
- Left-Hand Turns
- Tired Driving
