Left Turns Cause Too Many Fatal Motorcycle Crashes In Southwest Florida

Few situations are more dangerous for motorcyclists than when drivers of 4-wheeled vehicles in the opposing lanes turn left. Drivers often fail to notice or adequately mark the position of motorcyclists approaching in the other lane and cut right across their path of travel.

A recent accident in Englewood on McCall Road is an example of the need for drivers to be more aware of motorcyclists, especially when turning left across traffic and at night. Additionally, motorcyclists should always be aware of their own situation, the traffic around them even on the other lanes, and whether or not thier vehicle's lights are working properly.
