Bio SoCal is here for biohazard cleanup after roadway accidents throughout Palm Desert and the wider Southern California area.
Bio SoCal recently handled the accident cleanup in Palm Desert when a motorcycle collided with a vehicle at the intersection of Washington St. and Tucson Circle. As the motorcyclist was traveling down the roadway at a moderate rate of speed, a driver pulled into the intersection and struck the motorcyclist, ejecting him from his seat. Tragically, the motorcyclist died at the scene and the vehicle driver was transported to the hospital with minor injuries.
As soon as first responders released the scene for cleanup, Bio SoCal was there to remove all blood and body fluids from the pavement and surrounding environment to protect the community. While the work is never easy and we are extremely conscious of the lives lost, we love helping protect the health of our community.
While we don’t know exactly what happened in this accident, we want to make sure everyone is aware of other people on the roadways. Wherever you may live, please be careful while driving, carefully watching out for vehicles, motorcyclists, and pedestrians, and together we can avoid accidents while safety getting to and from our destinations.
Motorcyclists and vehicles watch out for each other
From an automobile driver’s viewpoint, a motorcycle is not much bigger than a bicycle. While motorcycles certainly can maneuver in tighter spaces than a vehicle, it is more difficult to see them, especially in wet or foggy weather. When you are driving, be aware of all moving objects around you, not just the other cars. Keep an eye out for animals, pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorcyclists. It is also important to be aware that motorcycles only have about 4 square inches of contact with the pavement on each tire instead of the more generous contact of a car’s four tires. Thus, give them lots of space to stop and maneuver around any obstacles, particularly in cold weather.
Motorcyclists need to be aware that vehicle drivers and truck drivers won’t see them as quickly as they will see another car. Especially if you are maneuvering around traffic, be aware a driver may not see you turning or coming into their lane. Give yourself and the other drivers lots of space to make those quick decisions to avoid each other and protect all lives involved.
It is easy to get distracted while on the road. When you’re driving, remove as many of these distractions as you can. Do not use your cell phone while driving and keep your eyes on the road at all times. It only takes a split second of distraction to alter many lives forever. By everyone paying attention to what we’re doing on the roadways, we can save lives and make sure everyone gets home safe.
