A bus driver affiliated with a major university in Texas received a traffic citation for failing to yield to a motorcyclist. The end result was a motorcycle accident that sent the motorcyclist to the hospital. Thankfully, the motorcyclist is expected to survive, but the full extent of his injuries is not known.
Many people in the greater Houston area and other parts of Texas enjoy riding motorcycles. Particularly as the weather in the area continues to get warmer, motorcyclists will take to the Texas roads for a number of reasons.
A collision between a vehicle and a motorcycle can be a serious personal injury incident, usually for the rider of the motorcycle. This is because motorcycles are not designed with structural protections around their riders; unlike cars and other personal vehicles that may have roll bars, airbags and seatbelts, motorcycles do not have many built-in safety features to keep their riders from suffering harm in crashes.
