DuPage County motorcycle accident attorney, motorcycle accidents, personal injury claim, DUI, DUI accidentsIf you regularly ride a motorcycle in Lombard or elsewhere in DuPage County, or even if you regularly share the road with motorcyclists, it is probably obvious that bikers have less protection in the event of a motorcycle accident than do vehicle occupants. Motorcyclists do not have the protection of the automobile’s body, airbags, and other safety features that often come standard in many vehicles.

While numerous studies have analyzed motorcycle collisions and their severity, a recent report from U.S. News & World Report suggests that motorcycle crashes are actually costlier and deadlier than many researchers and safety advocates previously believed.

Significantly Higher Death Rates in Motorcycle Accidents

DuPage County personal injury attorney, motorcyclists and lane splittingSpring weather across the nation is luring out motorcyclists onto highways and roads. While some drivers may view motorcycles as a risk or menace on the road, most motorcyclists are law abiding enthusiasts who have chosen a motorcycle over a car for various reasons. Yet whatever the reason, drivers are still wise in being cautious of motorcyclists.

Cars and motorcycles are involved in accidents daily—accidents which can cause significant personal injuries to both motorcyclists and others, in addition to property damage. Moreover, motorcyclists who “lane split,” or travel between actual lanes, can be a risk to themselves and to other cars and drivers.

Data from the California Enhanced Motorcycle Collision Data Project reports that 997 collision-involved motorcyclists, out of 5,969, were lane-splitting at the time of their collision. And while lane splitting may be considered actually safer for a rider, there are those who flout the law and create danger for others.

The state of Illinois started a new initiative on July 13thwhich aims to take unsafe motorcyclists off of the roads. The scheme is termed “operation rogue rider” because it targets motorcyclists who dart between traffic, race over 100 mph, and speed on shoulders. Patrols will be set between Devon and Old Orchard Rd on the Edens Expressway. These roving watches might soon be expanded to the Dan Ryan Expressway and Interstate 57.

Authorities are claiming that they receive nightly calls about dangerous motorcyclists. Between Skokie and Lincolnwood, hundreds of complaints have been received from local residents. It’s not only other drivers that are noticing the dangers of motorcyclists. So far this year, the Chicago region has experienced 13 fatalities and 7 injuries in motorcycle crashes. That amounts to an 85% increase in fatalities and a 75% increase in injuries compared to the same period of time last year.

Any motorist that is found guilty of driving recklessly could face up to a year in prison and fines up to $2,500. “Motorcyclists have a simple choice in the matter — violated the law and face hefty fines and jail time, or abide by the law and ride safely,” acting Illinois State Police District Chicago Lt. Jeff Grendzinski said. “Our top priority is for motorists to get to their final destination safely, and by implementing this enforcement plan, we save lives and prevent driving fatalities.”
