About Motorcycle Accidents on Country Roads

Most country roads in the UK can be dangerous for motorcycle users. The speed limit being 60mph unless different circumstances apply. It is usually too unsafe to drive that speed on the country roads, due to how dangerous they can sometimes be. With tight bends, narrow and damaged roads and debris on the surface; motorcyclists are likely to face injuries after a country road accident.

If you have been involved in an accident on a country road due to someone else’s negligence, you are likely to be able to claim compensation. We highly advise you to contact one of our experienced solicitors at Solicitors On Your Side Scotland; to get the highest possible compensation after your accident in the most stress-free and easy way.

What makes country roads dangerous 

There is a range of things that can make country roads dangerous around the UK. The speed limit is usually 60mph, meaning that at this speed, road users don’t have as much control on bends and have less time to react to any hazards on the road.

Because of the nature of country roads, it is harder to control hazards such as residue from fields and standing water. As country roads are usually located near farms and fields; they are more likely to have a slippery surface from mud that could have made its way onto the road, during wet weather conditions.

Country roads are usually not lit by streetlights, making smaller and more vulnerable road users are night be harder to be seen. More country road accidents occur at night as it is harder to see other road users, especially smaller ones. Just because the speed limit on a country road is 60mph, it doesn’t mean that vehicles should always drive at that speed. Vehicles should alter their speed appropriately to the weather and road conditions, to be able to have better control of their vehicle if hazards are present.

Types of accidents on country roads

There is a range of accidents that can occur on the country road, with the most common ones including:

  • Accidents that occur due to the conditions of the country roads. Motorcyclists are more likely to be affected by the road conditions; road conditions can be poorer due to the weather or to potholes, mud or debris on the roads.
  • Dangerous overtaking accidents can happen when road users overtake on a bend or don’t leave enough space for the motorcyclists. The causes of overtaking accidents involving motorcyclists can be never-ending. If you would like to find out more, read our “overtaking accidents with motorcyclists” page.
