Motorcyclists: Beware of intersection black spots

19 Nov 2014

Where's the most dangerous place you can be on a motorbike? Almost half of all bike crashes happen at intersections.

The Motor Accident Commission (MAC) warns motorcyclists should treat intersections as black spots. More accidents involving motorcyclists happen at intersections than anywhere else.

Black spots are not just confined to normal intersections. T-junctions and roundabouts are just as dangerous — even more so during wet, wintery conditions.
