Last week police made multiple arrests after a group of bikers stopped traffic on I-70 to perform dangerous stunts and tricks.
The bikers filmed each other in what has become known as "stunting," including driving very fast, popping wheelies, and weaving between cars. One biker crashed into a police car.
The story upset me to hear, because it might give bikers a bad name. Many motorcyclists condemn what this group did and don't want to be associated with them. But a lot of people might assume all bikers are inconsiderate and dangerous.
After a motorcycle accident, insurance companies will sometimes assume the same wrong things about bikers. They might try to argue you were being unsafe and were somehow responsible for the accident, even if you weren't.
This sort of bias can affect your case and make it harder to get the compensation you need to cover your injuries.
In truth, motorcycle crashes happen all the time - but they're often caused by cars, not bikes.
