Traffic sensors in Iowa fail to register motorcycles

Iowa motorcyclists enjoy taking their bikes out on the open road, especially during the summer. There are over 181,000 motorcycles registered in this state, which means that there are many riders sharing the roads with passenger vehicles. But too often, drivers fail to take note of smaller vehicles on the road. They do not take the time to look for them and they do not give motorcyclists appropriate amounts of space to respond to changing conditions. Because of this, many riders are put in danger and end up getting hurt in a motorcycle accident.

Imagine driving along a busy highway in the right lane when for some reason, you need to slow down. You may figure that others behind you will see that you have reduced your speed and adjust their own accordingly. However, many times this does not happen. People follow each other too closely or get distracted by other things and end up swerving to miss your car or smashing right into the back of it.
