Motorcycle Accident Attorneys In Dallas & Fort Worth
In Texas, motorcyclists are subject to the same speed restrictions as other vehicles. State transportation code requires all motorists to drive at a speed that is reasonable or prudent.
Unfortunately, some motorcyclists believe they are exempt from this law â€“ and the results can be fatal. The most recently available statistics revealed over 4,500 motorcycle rider fatalities in the U.S. in a single year.
What is the speed limit for motorcycles in Texas? Again, the laws of reasonable driving enforced on all vehicle drivers apply to motorcycle riders as well. Any speed in excess of the following speeds is evidence of unreasonable driving:
- 15 mph approaching a school crossing
- 25 mph in a business or residential district
- 65 mph in other locations, such as the highway
Despite these similarities, it is still important for those who wish to file suit against a motorcycle rider to contact an attorney with experience in motorcycle accident litigation.
