Making a left turn can sometimes be a treacherous undertaking on busy Chicago area streets. When drivers misjudge the distance and speed of an oncoming vehicle, it can lead to a serious T-bone accident. When one of the vehicles is a motorcycle, however, the potential for severe injury goes up dramatically.
Left turn accidents involving motorcycles tend to be much more prevalent because, when drivers make left turns, they look for full-sized vehicles in oncoming traffic. When they don’t see any, they assume it is safe to turn. In many cases, though, there is a motorcycle that the driver did not see. When the driver makes the turn, he or she drives right into the path of an oncoming motorcycle.
