Commentary on Roberto Sobalvarro Accident on W Little York Rd

It's not clear exactly what happened here, but accidents like this are often more complex than folks may realize. Put simply, motorcyclists have to endure a lot of harmful misconceptions about them and their choice of vehicle. Without a proper investigation into the Little York Road crash, it may be far too easy for people to just assume the rider was somehow acting reckless.

Investigators could ultimately find that's what happened, but jumping to such conclusions without clear evidence won't do anyone any good. Motorcyclists can be perfectly responsible operators; in fact many of them are extremely cautious because they know other drivers don't always keep a proper lookout for them. Moreover, motorcycles don't have the benefit of seatbelts or airbags so many riders realize safety is more a matter of prevention for them. Nevertheless, the news never talk about riders who behave so people assume every rider is a wannabe daredevil. That point of view can be pretty harmful after a motorcycle accident because those biases keep people from giving the rider the benefit of the doubt.

Maybe authorities are giving this incident the careful attention it deserves, but in my experience it often takes more thorough independent investigations to ensure a motorcyclist's family gets the answers they deserve.
