Respecting each motorist's right of way is essential to help assure accident prevention. Not following traffic regulations and being unaware of other vehicles are sure fire ways of endangering lives. This is especially true for motorcycle riders. In a motorcycle accident, riders can suffer catastrophic injuries, like neck and brain injuries, that can result in permanent disability. The likelihood of death in these cases can be very high as well. This was apparent in a recent accident south of Tampa.
A 54-year-old motorcyclist was killed recently in an early morning accident when a car driven by a 34-year-old man collided with the motorcyclist in Wesley Chapel. The biker was heading west when the car stopped at a stop sign at Nashville Drive and then turned left onto County Line Road and into the path of the motorcyclist.
