Riding a motorcycle can be a dangerous way to get around. In more than half of crashes involving a motorcycle and a vehicle, the rider is not at fault. But lack of blame doesn’t make crashes less hazardous for motorcyclists: 75 percent of crashes result in an injury or fatality for the rider.
One of the best things you can do to reduce your risk of serious injury or death on your motorcycle is to wear a sturdy helmet. If you crash, a DOT-compliant helmet can help minimize head trauma, possibly saving your life. A National Highway Traffic Safety Administration study found that motorcyclists wearing helmets had a lower likelihood of injuries to the head and face in a crash, and they were less likely to suffer a traumatic brain injury.
In Maryland, helmets aren’t just a suggestion for motorcycle riders; they’re the law.
Rain, ice, and snow impair a car driver’s ability to drive safely. 17% of all fatal car accidents and 20% of all car accidents resulting in personal injury occur during adverse weather.
The fact that so many dangerous car accidents occur during bad weather is common sense for any driver in Maryland, as we try to navigate our congested highways and side streets. In bad weather, our visibility, ability to stop, and ability to control our vehicle are obviously limited.
Two of the major excuses I hear from negligent drivers are, “I looked, but I just didn’t see them,” or, “I tried to stop but couldn’t.” These excuses are not good defenses.
The Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration Driver’s Manual states, in part, that:
“Drivers must recognize and adjust their speed to adverse conditions. Maryland Vehicle Law requires that motorists drive at a reasonable and prudent speed and with a regard for existing and potential hazards. You may drive slower than the posted speed limit, based on road conditions, but it is illegal to drive any faster than the posted speed limit.”
Under Maryland law, all drivers must use “reasonable care” when they are behind a wheel:
“The driver of a motor vehicle must use reasonable care. Reasonable care is that degree of caution and attention, which a person of ordinary skill and judgment would use under similar circumstances. What constitutes reasonable care depends upon the circumstances of a particular case.” Maryland Pattern Jury Instruction -Civil – 18:1 STANDARD OF CARE.
