The most common collision involving cars colliding with motorcycles occurs when the motorist turns left in front of a motorcycle at an intersection . There is a danger point wherever motorcycles are intersecting with traffic traveling in and out of driveways, side streets or merging into traffic

This collision involved a driver turning left at an intersection where a vehicle had stopped in the opposite lane. Neither the driver of the car or motorcycle reacted to the dangerous situation at the intersection. Approximately 40% of all motorcycle collisions occur at intersections.

If there is slowing or stopped traffic in you direction of travel slow down and proceed with caution. The vehicle may be blocking the view of a hazard. Also, don't assume traffic won't drive around traffic that has stopped to let you by.
