Types of Road Hazards Motorcyclists May Encounter
Road design and defects in the road can cause accidents. The roadway on which you were traveling may have a design flaw, or the signage on the road might be inadequate or incorrect. Some of the common design flaws in roadways include poorly designed intersections, lack of dividers, not enough room along the shoulder, and flooding because there is not adequate drainage. Flooding could cause one to lose control of his or her bike.
Defects with the signs or signals along the road could fail to provide proper warning to motorcyclists. If you do not have knowledge of upcoming features in the road, accidents can happen. In some cases, the signs may be missing entirely, or there may not be signage indicating an upcoming construction area. The roads in Southern California often go through construction, and it is important that these areas have proper signage alerting drivers. Defective and broken traffic lights can cause similar problems.
