Martin Street ends at Robinson Drive.As the car was approaching Robinson Drive, it would have to turn left or right. There is a stop sign on Martin Street for traffic on Martin Street (like the car) to yield to those vehicles on Robinson Drive. There are no traffic control devices (stop signs or traffic lights) for traffic on Robinson Drive at this intersection.

Our client was simply riding on Robinson Drive and, just as she was passing Martin Street, the car suddenly pulled out, causing a collision. The driver of the car told the responding police officer he was going to make a left turn. Apparently, he must have looked to his right to check for oncoming cars from that direction. Unfortunately, he didn’t look to his left again before entering the intersection to start his turn.He therefore pulled out into the intersection and our client crashed into his car.

This kind of accident happens frequently with motor scooters, motorcycles, and even bicycles.Since scooters have become more popular, there has been a surge inemergency room visits for fractures, dislocations and head trauma, the CDC found in a study. Driver distraction and inattention are the main causes.
