Motorcyclists have a Right to the Road
Some people hold the incorrect belief that motorcycles have an extra obligation to drive with caution on the road. This is simply not the case. Motorcyclists have just as much of a right to the road as does any of the other drivers. In fact, the data actually shows that when a multi-vehicle accident involves a motorcycle, it is more likely to be caused by the negligence of the other driver than the negligence of a motorcyclist. Every driver, no matter the vehicle, has a legal obligation to act with prudent care on the road.
