Commentary on Motorcycle Accident on I-45 in Montgomery County
Reports like this no doubt reaffirm the preconception a lot of folks have that motorcyclists are all reckless daredevils who cause accidents. Maybe that did happen here. I certainly have no specific reason to doubt the reports. But it's a common result of negative bias that people blame motorcyclists only for evidence to show that blame was misplaced. I've even had cases where witnesses reportedly saw a motorcyclist being reckless, but evidence would show those witnesses completely misremembered the facts and got the story wrong. If nothing else, thorough investigations help to give people some benefit of the doubt until the evidence can speak for itself. Are those steps being taken here?
