Bad things happen when drivers don’t pay attention to their surroundings, like this video of a driver pulling a car right into the path of an oncoming motorcycle. We see videos like this on almost a daily basis – we understand motorcycles don’t have the same visible profile as regular cars, but geez, they’re not invisible! Pay attention to what’s going on around you, and accidents like this can easily be avoided.
The motorcycle is heading down what appears to be a downtown road, with cars parked on either side of the street. No big deal, until at an intersection just up ahead, a car decides to cut across traffic – we actually can’t decide if the car was pulling an illegal u-turn or attempting to pull into a parking spot across the street, but that’s beside the point. The point is, the driver makes his move and gives the motorcyclist absolutely no time to avoid the collision. The bike hits, and the rider goes flying. Fortunately he was ok, but this could have been much worse. If morons like this driver would be more aware of their surroundings, we’d all be a lot safer on the roads.
