Should motorcycles be equipped with V2V technology?

On Behalf of | Jan 14, 2015 | Motorcycle Accidents |

When you were a kid, did you ever ride your bicycle down a steep hill? Did it feel exhilarating to feel the wind blowing through your hair? Did you think it was cool to be travelling so fast on something that only had two wheels? If you’re like a lot of people here in Los Angeles, this may be one of your fondest memories from your childhood.

For those who ride motorcycles though, this isn’t just a memory, it’s a reality. A lot of people find riding motorcycles just as exhilarating as riding a bike down a hill as a young child. The only difference now is that you may be surrounded by a number of other vehicles that can quickly turn exhilaration into a trip to the hospital if people aren’t paying attention to where they’re going.

As some of our more frequent readers know, we talk a lot on this blog about the aftermath of a serious motorcycle accident. But what if you could prevent an accident from occurring in the first place? This is the promise creators of V2V technology are making, which begs the question: should motorcycles be equipped with this technology?

The answer is yes. V2V technology, or vehicle-to-vehicle communication, allows motor vehicles to “talk” to each other, providing useful safety information that could help prevent crashes and other accidents.

It’s important to point out that current prototypes of the system only warn drivers about potential dangers, forcing the driver to react accordingly to the situation. These systems could be advanced though and integrated into self-driving cars, which would detect a potential danger and react for the driver instead.

By implementing V2V technology in motorcycles, we could see a huge reduction in the number of crashes that occur each year nationwide. This would then mean less accident-related injuries and fatalities, which would be a welcomed sight to a lot of our readers who know how devastating these crashes can be for families and friends.
