Traffic on metropolitan Washington roadways in Virginia and Maryland continues to be severely congested. During summer months some people choose to use motorcycles as a means of transportation, some for economic and maneuverability reasons and some for the joy they derive from riding a motorcycle. A downside is that these vehicles can be hard to see and tragic motorcycle accidents can result.
Every year, it seem that there are more and more vehicles on Maryland roadways. As traffic increases so does the likelihood of a serious accident. In addition to car and truck traffic, there are also a significant number of motorcycles on the highways. Motorcycles are smaller and can be harder to see, making it necessary for motorists to always be on the lookout for them in order to prevent motorcycle accidents.
