After reading the various posts on left turn accidents, it got me to thinking. Since the reports stated that either the car [/u]or bike was making a left hand turn, it makes sence.

I really couldn't think of a scenario in where one of the 2 vehicles making a right hand turn would cause an accident. Besides someone following too close.

Most stats reflect that our biggest threat as motorcyclists - from other vehicles - are vehicles turning left in front of us - that is, they are the ones turning left in fron of our path of travel - going to our right.

Sadly, many jurisdictions do not effectively deal with this.
