4th of July weekend is most dangerous for motorcycle riders

When the weather is nice, bikers tend to get out on their motorcycles to enjoy the fresh air. With motorcycles out on the roads, other motorists have to be on the lookout for these low-profile, open vehicles. As the Fourth of July holiday weekend approaches, it is vitally important that all drivers watch for motorcycles to avoid the risk of getting into an accident with one. Ohio residents might be interested to learn about why this is so important this weekend.

A statement from Progressive Insurance reveals that the three-day Fourth of July holiday is the most dangerous three-day stretch for motorcycle riders all year long. Since the holiday falls on a Friday this year, that means that the normal risk of motorcycle accidents that usually occurs over the weekend is increased by the risk of the holiday.

The data from Progressive shows that July 5 through 7 is associated with the highest number of motorcycle accidents all year long. From 2009 through 2013, July 6 had the biggest number of motorcycle claims and accidents.

As drivers travel over this holiday weekend, they should make sure that they use proper safety measures. Checking blind spots and making sure that you are following the traffic laws are ways to help keep the roadways safe. Drivers who fail to drive safely might cause accidents that have serious or fatal results.

Any biker who is involved in an Ohio motorcycle accident caused by another driver might opt to seek compensation for his or her injuries. Understanding how to file a claim for compensation and knowing your rights can help you as you go through the process.
