Running Red Lights
One of the most dangerous situations for motorcyclists is stopping at a red light. Cars that are not paying attention or that are following too closely may not stop in time to avoid a dangerous rear-end collision. These types of accidents can be damaging for the motorcycle and life-threatening to its rider. Often riders do not see this type of accident coming and the resulting injuries can be severe.
If you or someone you love has been injured in a motorcycle accident, it may be important to seek justice and proper compensation from the responsible party. Motorcyclists are vulnerable to injury and if their rights to the road are not respected, the results can be devastating.

Legal or Illegal?
On Wisconsin roads, you may see motorcyclists who seem to disregard red lights. In fact, Wisconsin – along with at least 5 other states – has passed laws allowing motorcyclists to go through red lights when they feel it is safe because of the inability of many stop lights to detect their presence. This law, which was passed in 2006, is beneficial for motorcyclists in the following ways:
- Protects them from dangerous rear-end accidents
- Allows them to navigate any road
- Keeps traffic moving
- Makes motorcyclists more attentive to surrounding traffic
If you’ve been injured by an inattentive driver, you and your family deserve financial compensation for your injuries.
