Motorcyclist injured in hit-and-run accident

Motorcycles are one of the most popular ways to get around North Carolina as we enter summer. Bikes are fun to ride and cooler for drivers in the high mountain air of the Great Smokies or the coastal plains near the Atlantic. But there are always risks when people hit the road, and the risks are greater for people on vehicles with no protection.

Do I have to wear a helmet in North Carolina?

Nothing is more precious than your life, and nothing is more important to keeping it than your head. Although it is way more fun in some cases to tear around the roads of the Tar Heel State with nothing on your head, that is also a good way to fall victim to careless drivers, poor road conditions and other unseen hazards.

Driver charged for North Carolina motorcycle fatality

There are few thrills for a kid that compare with flying down the open road on a bike. In that way, many motorcyclists are like grown-up kids, enjoying the grown-up version of those incredible bicycle rides from their youth. Unfortunately, just like bicyclists, motorcyclists are especially vulnerable to injuries and death when they're involved in an accident with a passenger vehicle of some kind.

Drivers can do more to avoid motorcycle collisions

There are obvious risks in life and there are hidden ones. The risks that are hard to spot are the ones that can keep us awake at night. It's hard to imagine having to wake up with the knowledge that one could have prevented a serious injury or a death, but that is often the case for a driver who has struck a motorcycle.

Late night Motorcycle crash kills man in Durham

Motorcycles are as much a part of modern life in North Carolina as horses were part of its early history. Although plenty of people were injured or even killed in accidents related to horses in Tar Heel past, it is far more likely for a motorcycle crash to lead to serious trauma, permanent disability or death.

Avoiding motorcycle accident risks

As more and more people in North Carolina and across the U.S. choose motorcycles as their primary means of transportation, the number of motorcycle crashes will go up. There are a number of dangers that riders must be aware of, especially those involving weather, road and traffic conditions. Reduced visibility at night is another danger, contributing to as much as 60% of all motorcycle crashes.

Helping autonomous vehicles navigate the road with motorcycles

It is likely that North Carolina residents may soon have the experience of sharing the road with autonomous vehicles. Right now, autonomous vehicle companies are testing their vehicles on the road. They need their autonomous driving systems to be able to safely interact with numerous things on the road. This could include bicycles, pedestrians, other passenger cars, delivery vans and trucks, stray animals and motorcycles. The data that these companies are gathering now will prepare their autopilot systems to navigate the roads in the future.

How to safely ride a motorcycle

While it may be possible to ride a motorcycle in North Carolina during all four seasons, it is important to do so safely. Each of the seasons has its share of inclement weather conditions that riders need to be ready for. In the spring, there is a good chance that it will rain, which can create slippery road conditions. Roads tend to be at their worst just after they get wet.
