Winter may still be battering parts of the Northeast, but signs of spring are emerging in Springfield. The warmer temperatures of April will bring many restive riders out on the roads for the first motorcycle ride of Spring 2018.
Rear-end collisions are nothing new. They happen to people all the time. Many of the people who end up in these crashes had no idea they were about to happen.
If you're a motorcyclist, you have probably survived more close calls with motorists than you like to contemplate. From wearing reflective clothing to installing loud pipes on your bike, you've done all that you can to ensure that you are a visible, audible presence on the road.
If you wind up injured in a collision, the range of injuries you could suffer run the gamut from minor bruising and soreness to fatal.
Imagine driving through Springfield on your daily commute to work. As usual, you end up catching every stop light on the way, but the last one did not end in the typical fashion, with you accelerating at the green light and driving one more block to school. Instead, another driver rear-ended you just after you came a stop at the red light.
