“Motorists must be aware of motorcyclists on the road at all time. They may not always appear in rear view mirrors and often end up in blind spots causing drivers to completely miss them, creating potential for a possible accident,” said the attorneys from Lexton Law Firm, a California motorcycle accident and injury law firm.
