Unique problems facing motorcycle drivers:
Motorcycles are smaller targets, making them harder to see especially at intersections, where approximately 70% of motorcycle accidents occur. In addition, potholes, uneven pavement, ruts, railroad tracks, and other objects on the road that only pose minor threats to passenger vehicles can be major hazards for motorcycles. Also, in some cases, the front end of a motorcycle will wobble at high speeds because of a misalignment of the front and back tires, and the manufacturer of the motorcycle can be held financially liable for injuries caused by this misalignment.
