For the past 7 years, Dania Beach has hosted “the Dania Beach Vintage
Motorcycle Show,” which is said to be the biggest vintage bike show
in all of South Florida. The 8th annual show will feature 250 antique
motorcycles, music, vendors, and a lot more. With similar motorcycle shows
throughout the state, there is no doubt that Florida has some of the biggest
motorcycle enthusiasts in the nation and more motorcycles on the road
than many other states.
Unfortunately, motorcyclists carry a stigma of being reckless drivers on
the road. When there is an accident with a motorcycle on the road, most
onlookers are quick to blame the biker for the collision. However, a recent
Florida study is proving otherwise. According to a 10 year analysis of
motorcycle accidents in Florida, 60 percent of the time, vehicle drivers
are at fault in collisions with motorcycles.
A big contributing factor to vehicle drivers being at fault in motorcycle
accidents is the increase of distracted drivers on the road. According the
Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), each day, more than 9 people are killed and 1,060 injured in the United
States in crashes that involve a distracted vehicle driver. Distracted
driving includes eating, reaching for something, texting, daydreaming
and other sources of distraction as well. The CDC reports that one of
the most dangerous types of distracted vehicle driving is texting because
it requires the 3 main types of distraction which are visual (eyes off
the road), manual (hands off the wheel), and cognitive (mind not thinking
Motorcyclists must be cautious because the number of distracted drivers
is on the rise. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) recommends
that both motor vehicle drivers and motorcycle drivers work together in
an effort to reduce accidents. FDOT suggests the vehicle drivers look
twice for motorcyclists and when passing a motorcycle, give the full lane
to the motorcycle driver. As for bikers, the FDOT recommends that bikers
make an effort to be more conspicuous on the road. Suggestions include
using reflective stickers, attaching reflective patches to clothes, and
wearing bright colors.
