As reported by 10News, a motorcyclist in San Diego’s East County was speeding around a curve in the road, lost control of his bike and crashed into a guardrail. The driver lost his life at the scene of the motorcycle accident. He was driving in a pack of other motorcycles at the time.
This tragic real-life event is just one example of the dangers faced by motorcycle drivers every day. Motorcycles are inherently more dangerous than your average sedan, but motorcyclists’ driving behavior also create more danger. Driving behaviors such as driving in packs and driving between cars pose greater risks to the motorcycle rider and others.
These added risks mean that motorcyclists should not pinch pennies and settle for minimum motorcycle insurance coverage. Minimum insurance coverage may be insufficient to help you and your family after a devastating accident. Consider talking to different insurance companies about increasing coverage to $1,000,000. You may find that the added monthly payments you’ll have to make will be small compared to the benefit you may need.
