Grass clipping are a motorcycle's nemesis

Motorcycle riders have a lot of hazards that they have to deal with. If you are thinking about these, your mind might focus on things like potholes and other driver, but there is another issue that might lead to danger – grass clippings that are blown into the road when citizens mow their lawns.

For a motorcycle rider, going over grass clippings is akin to riding on ice. The loose grass can get stuck in the tread of the tires, which means that the tires can't grip the surface of the road like they need to. This can lead to slipping and an inability of the motorcyclist to control the vehicle.

One of the only things that a motorcyclist can do if they are faced with grass clippings on the road is to try to avoid them. If that isn't possible, they will have to keep a consistent speed and keep the tires steady as they ride over, but this isn't any guarantee that they will be able to avoid an accident.

Motorcyclists also have to watch out for other vehicles while they are paying attention to the road for grass clippings. This can quickly turn a pleasureful ride into a stressful one, but it doesn't have to end in tragedy. Other drivers must pay close attention for motorcycles when the weather is nice. They should remember that these low-profile vehicles are sometimes hard to spot.

If a motorcyclist is hit by another vehicle, catastrophic injuries can occur. The medical care and other financial impacts can be considerable. Seeking compensation from the driver who struck them might be necessary since it attempts to recover monetary damages.
