It is important to always check for motorcyclists while driving. Due to their size and speed, it’s easy to miss motorcycles, especially at night or during heavy traffic activity.
Moreover, check your blind spots twice before changing lanes, and never try to cut off a motorcycle. Also, maneuvering around a speeding bike can easily cause an accident, so avoid doing so.
We at Sweet Lawyers would like to extend our condolences to the family and friends of Patrick McNamara. Our thoughts are with those affected by this.
