Common Motorcycle Dangers in Maryland

Motorcyclists understand the most common motorcycle dangers in Maryland. However, people who don’t ride motorcycles may be unfamiliar with these causes of serious accident.

Most common motorcycle dangers in Maryland

Just like any accident, some dangers are under your control, some you can avoid, and some are unpredictable.

Unpredictable dangers are the result of negligence.  Negligence is when a person does not act reasonably in accordance with the rule of the road.  Here are the most common motorcycle dangers.

Road conditions

Hazardous road conditions include potholes, fresh gravel, and construction zones. Construction zones are particularly dangers areas for motorcyclists due to the uneven, and sometime unmarked, road conditions.


Rain, snow, fog and ice increase the risk to motorcyclists.

Driving under the influence

Alcohol affects the skills essential to riding a motorcycle, balance and coordination.

Negligent drivers

Negligent drivers play a role in motorcycle crashes.  For example, motorcyclists are extremely vulnerable to blind spots, as well as the other common fatal causes of accident.

Remember, Maryland is a contributory negligence state.  Mean, if a motorcyclist is at all at fault for the accident, then they are barred from recovering any compensation.
