Residents in Virginia who ride motorcycles deserve to have their rights on the road respected just as much as do drivers of other vehicles. Unfortunately, bikers often end up being overlooked both literally and otherwise by people in standard passenger vehicles. It may also seem as though the larger vehicle drivers act like they have more of a right to be on the road than a motorcyclist.
Among the many common hazards for motorcyclists is the concern about a vehicle that turns into their path of travel. This may happen because the driver is rude or negligent or because the driver simply does not see the biker. Regardless of the reason, the outcome can be tragic.
