Motorcycles in New Hampshire Are Everywhere and the Spectator Misses the Point

A recent op-ed article in the American Spectator criticizes motorcyclists for driving “impractical conveyances” and disrupting drivers on the road with their rumbling tailpipes. But though the article, written by Henry Gekonde, is for the most part an innocuous reflection on the popularity of motorcycling in New Hampshire, it misses its point at the very end.

“Still, the bikers can’t wait, and they’ve already brought out their machines, and they’re big and loud. ‘MOTORCYCLES ARE EVERYWHERE,’ says a bumper sticker on an SUV. It’s not a warning; it’s a deliberate provocation,” says Gekonde.

Unfortunately, this misconception is one that can hurt motorcyclists.

The warning that “motorcycles are everywhere” is, unfortunately, one that many New Hampshire motorists would do well to heed. All too often, motorists fail to adequately share the road with their two-wheeled counterparts by merging without looking, taking turns without checking the road ahead of them, or failing to give way to motorcycles. The consequences of New Hampshire motorcycle accidents can be devastating, even fatal especially for motorcyclists, who are more likely to sustain life-threatening injuries from a vehicle-on-motorcycle crash.

Take the recent injuries of three Tenn And Tenn, P.A. clients. One suffered a severe brain injury and required multiple surgeries and long-term wound and pain management. Another suffered a traumatic brain injury and has required ongoing speech therapy to recover from his injuries. Another was injured when the motorcycle on which she was a passenger crashed off of the roadway. Though Tenn And Tenn, P.A. recovered full compensation for each of these clients, more caution and respect for motorcyclists could have prevented these devastating and expensive injuries and helped our client's quality of life.

Motorcycles ARE everywhere and motorcyclists deserve as much respect as other drivers on the road. However, accidents do happen and motorcyclists do have legal rights. If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, don’t let those rights go unnoticed; instead, assert them with the help of an experienced and skilled New Hampshire motorcycle injury attorney from Tenn And Tenn, P.A.
