This accident has the makeup of what we see a lot of, the car driver just doesn’t see the motorcycle, and turns without yielding the right of way and the motorcycle driver and rider pay the price – one with his life. The legal liability aspects are pretty clear and should result in the automobile insurance company for the at-fault driver paying the limits. But this accident, like all motorcycle accidents makes me wonder about how we can increase the visibility of motorcycles. These intersection motorcycle-car accidents are far too common to not get some inventor’s attention.
