The Number of fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Massachusetts Has Been Increasing in 2021
MASSACHUSETTS - A news article published on wupe.com reports that Massachusetts has been witnessing an increase in the number of fatal motorcycle accidents in 2021.
State officials reported that between January 2021 and July of 2021, there had been 37 fatal motorcycle accidents throughout the state and eleven alone in western Massachusetts.
According to the news report, there were 37 motorcycle accident deaths in Massachusetts, but four of the accidents occurred in the month of July. This accounts for a substantial 31% increase from the past five years. According to MASS.GOV, the statistics also show that in over two-thirds of car-motorcycle accidents, the vehicle's driver is at fault, not the motorcycle operator.
The news article suggests that motor vehicle drivers can't see the motorcycle until it is too late to circumvent a collision.
Motorcycle accidents are typically caused by:
- Inability to see the motorcycle. Motorcycles are small vehicles that can be easy to miss.
- Road conditions lead to an accident. Traffic and weather conditions make it difficult for motorists to predict what a motorcyclist will do in certain circumstances.
- Motorists fail to see a motorcyclist in their blind spot.
- Dangerous road conditions such as potholes, trash, or other obstacles can lead to motorcycle accidents.
