Water Pooling and Motorcycle Accidents
Traveling by automobile requires the acceptance of a number of dangers associated with driving or riding at speeds far greater than those which are attainable by someone on foot. For a motorcyclist, the significance and severity of each of these is elevated even further due to the lack of most safety features that one might expect to find on a passenger vehicle. One absolutely unacceptable hazard, however, is the presence of highway defects. With so many other threats to rider safety, motorcyclists should not also have to worry that the very roads upon which they travel will cause them to have an accident.
Water that collects into pools in depressions or voids in the surface of the roadway can be especially troublesome because it is difficult to see the gathered water before it is too late to prevent direct contact with it. As the wheels of the motorcycle encounter the water, the sudden and dramatic change in friction can alter the rotation speed of the wheels and may cause a rider to lose control of his or her bike.
