Motorcycle collisions can occur at any time, but there are certain periods when the risk of a wreck is especially high. For example, the nighttime hours can be particularly dangerous for motorcyclists as well as those operating larger vehicles, bicyclists and pedestrians. There are many reasons why riding at night can be so risky, from decreased visibility to driver fatigue and intoxicated driving. Whether you regularly ride your motorcycle at night or only take to the road at night once in a while, it is very important to be aware of the hazards you may encounter.

At night, motorcyclists, as well as drivers, can have difficulty seeing the road and other vehicles, which can increase the chances of a collision. Moreover, many people get behind the wheel while they are intoxicated during these hours, which can be especially dangerous when combined with other risk factors such as fatigue and poor visibility. Sadly, many lives have been lost due to motorcycle accidents that took place during the nighttime, and many more motorcyclists will be involved in these crashes throughout the summer.

If you were recently hit by a driver at night while riding a motorcycle, you should immediately examine your legal options. You may need to file a lawsuit if you sustained injuries in the wreck, which happened as a result of their negligence. Regrettably, some drivers disregard these risks and get behind the wheel after drinking or while they are too tired to drive safely, and they should answer for their poor decisions.
