Riding a motorcycle is fun, but it can also be risky because of the actions of others on the road. Unlike other vehicles, you don't have much protection if you crash. Additionally, riding a motorcycle can be dangerous on roads with a lot of potholes or if you're riding in unsafe weather conditions. Below are some tips for staying safe while riding.

Being involved in a truck accident can be incredibly scary, and with so many trucks out on the road at any given time, there’s no shortage of them. With so many people out on the road, it’s no surprise that collisions happen every day.
As we continue to enter our freeways, highways, and streets in droves, we should remain vigilant as accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. While there are multiple ways to get into an accident while out on the road, here are the most common types of truck accidents:
Truck rollover wrecks are arguably one of the most terrifying accidents imaginable. These wrecks can happen for several reasons:
One or a combination of these reasons can cause the trail to spin and roll the truck over one side, causing a dangerous situation for everyone on the road.
These accidents occur when commercial trucks with trailers make wrong turns or braking maneuvers, causing the trail to sway sideways to form a shape similar to that of a folding jackknife.
Rear-end wrecks happen when truck drivers are speeding, distracted, or cut off by other drivers who then slam on their breaks. Tailgating or following too closely can lead to devastating rear-end collisions with other vehicles.
Head-on collisions occur when a truck collides head-first with oncoming traffic. Potential causes of head-on accidents include distracted driving, speeding, or driving while under the influence. However, these collisions can also be caused by other vehicles swerving into the lane in which the truck is driving.
T-bone accidents occur commonly at intersections. Large commercial trucks traveling through intersections sometimes ignore stop signs or run red lights, violating the proper right of way at the intersection. As a result, they collide with the sides of other vehicles, forming a “T” shape.
These accidents happen if a truck stops suddenly and the approaching smaller vehicle gets trapped under the trailer. In addition, actions such as merging or changing lanes and when a car is in the truck’s blind spot are common causes of under-ride accidents. This is why it’s so important to follow the signs posted on the back of trucks, and to remain aware of your surroundings while in a smaller vehicle.
Cargo should be appropriately secured and loaded onto a truck trailer. Improperly secured cargo can sway and fall off the truck into the road, causing a safety threat to other road users.
These accidents occur when the truck driver fails to brake in time to prevent a potential accident. While there are times where this could have been avoided, brakes can also fail due to wear and tear or manufacturer defects.
