Thanks to Progressive Insurance Company, motorcyclists have an opportunity to understand when most motorcycle accidents occur and in what type accidents motorcycles are usually involved. Perhaps this information can help make your ride a more pleasant and safe one.
Progressive looked at its motorcycle claims for 2014 and has released these facts:
Most motorcycle accidents occur on Saturdays, followed by Sunday and Friday. Not too surprising.
July was the busiest month for motorcycle claims, followed by August and June. Again probably not too much of a surprise.
What might be a surprise is that most motorcycle insurance claims arose from single vehicle accidents. In other words, only the motorcycle was involved! There were more single vehicle claims than the total of the next three types combined!
Drive extra carefully when you are out on the weekends and during the summer riding season. And do not lose your concentration while on the road with no other vehicles in sight!
