Washington State Motorcycle Laws

Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in Seattle Washington

You get a certain sense of freedom and peace when you ride your motorcycle in Seattle. Mount Rainier, Puget Sound, and awe-inspiring ocean views provide a beautiful backdrop for each journey. As a biker, you encounter that freedom and the beauty each time you hit the road but you must make room for caution as well.

Sometimes, other drivers don’t look out for bikers the way they should. If you are a biker, you already know how important it is to drive defensively and protect yourself from harm. You should also get to know Washington State motorcycle laws. You will know your legal rights and understand your responsibilities.

Bikers Must Look out for Themselves

In Washington State, there are currently 236,153 registered motorcycles sharing the road with other vehicles. 450,362 licensed drivers have motorcycle endorsements. Bikers are an integral part of everyday Seattle life, because motorbiking saves transportation costs and simplifies parking. It transforms even the most boring commute into an adventure.

Private passenger vehicle drivers and big rig operators don’t always respect a motorcyclist’s right to share the road. They sometimes fail to share a lane or cut off a biker’s right of way. Sometimes, vehicle drivers simply don’t notice a biker because he’s in a blind spot or visually out of their range. Any one of these lapses in motorcycle awareness or vehicle etiquette has the power to cause serious or catastrophic injuries. A focus on motorcycle laws can help motorcyclists understand their rights and responsibilities. It can help vehicle drivers understand that their lack of motorcycle awareness and vehicle etiquette might also be against the law.

The Rules of the Road for Washington Motorcyclists

Washington vehicle laws include motorcycles within the formal “motor vehicle” definition. Many of the same laws apply to cars and two-wheeled, motorized vehicles designed for public roads. You’ll find a full listing and the complete text of state vehicle and motorcycle laws within the Revised Codes of Washington, Title 46 RCW, Motor Vehicles. If you prefer not to wade through the formal text, here are a few of the basic laws without the legalese:

Rules of the Road 46,61: Motorcycle riders must follow the same driving laws as vehicle drivers. Each section of the RCW Rules of the Road contains a list of guidelines with links to detailed code explanations. This section covers 12 specific categories beginning with “Obedience and Effect of Traffic Laws,” to “Operation of non-motorized vehicles.” Where applicable, sections list criminal penalties for failure to comply.

These Rules of the Road apply specifically to motorcycle riders:

  • RCW 46.61.608, “Operating Motorcycles on Roadways Laned for Traffic,” outlines motorcycle lane use and restrictions. It explains that a motorcycle is entitled to use a full lane and that no vehicle should deprive a biker of that right. This guideline allows two motorcycles to share a lane. It further explains that a motorcycle cannot pass a person within the same lane unless they are a bicyclist or a pedestrian. Bikers cannot drive between lanes of traffic.
  • RCW 46.61.610, “Riding on Motorcycle,” requires a rider to ride on a “…permanent or regular seat…” A biker can’t carry a passenger unless they have a two-person seat or a seat that’s “…firmly attached…” to the cycle at the rear or side of the driver.
  • RCW 46.61.611, “Motorcycles—Maximum Height for Handlebars,” requires that motorcycle handlebars not exceed a height that’s 30 inches higher than a cyclist’s seat. This restriction applies to cycles that travel on public highways.
  • RCW 46.61.612, “Riding on Motorcycles—Position of Feet” explains that a biker can’t ride with both feet on one side of their bike.
  • RCW 46.61.613, “Motorcycles—Temporary Suspension of Restrictions for Parades or Public Demonstrations” the title is simple and self-explanatory.
  • RCW 46.61.614, “Riding on motorcycles—Clinging to other vehicles” prohibits cyclists from attaching their bikes to another vehicle in a public roadway.

Additional Motorcycle Laws

The RCW details additional Motorcycle laws Under Chapter 46.37, Vehicle Lighting and Other Equipment. RCW 46.37.530, explains equipment requirements applicable to motorcycles, mopeds and other two-wheeled vehicles.

  • Motorcycles must have left and right side mirrors with a 200-foot rear view range. This restriction doesn’t apply to certain restored vintage cycles.
  • Bikers riding a cycle without a windshield must wapp.leg.wa.gov/RCW/default.aspxear “…glasses, goggles, or a face shield…” that complies with state patrol rules.
  • Bikers must wear a helmet with a secure neck or chin strap unless the cycle is a vintage model or has a steering wheel, seat belts, or enclosed seating area.
  • A motorcyclist cannot transport a child under five years old
  • Helmets must be US Department of Transportation certified and meet the 49.CFR § 571.218 helmet standard for the year it was manufactured.

Keeping Bikers Safe

Motorcyclists are vulnerable when accidents occur. Unlike vehicles, they have no protective barriers. Few have restraints or passive safety systems. During an accident, vulnerability and lack of protection increase a motorcyclist’s potential for serious and fatal injury.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s 2017 crash statistics show that motorcyclist accounted for 14 percent of nationwide traffic fatalities while motorcycles made up only 3 percent of registered vehicles. The Washington Department of Transportation’s 2015 Annual Collision Summary reveals that motorcycle crashes occurred an average of every four hours in the state. Out of 2,440 documented motorcycle collisions that year, cyclists and their passengers sustained 76 fatal injuries, 406 serious injuries, and 1,562 minor injuries.

Motorcycle laws and safety guidelines aren’t designed to be intentionally restrictive. They’re in place because all drivers need guidelines that help keep bikers safe. In furtherance of this quest, the US Department of Transportation sets aside May as Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. Their Share the Road campaign and other safety initiatives draw attention to biker safety and biker awareness all year long.

Top Causes of Car Accidents: What to Watch for While Driving

Distracted Driving Accident Lawyer in Seattle Washington

No matter how defensively you drive, reckless drivers are all around you. In a matter of seconds, your life can change forever due to a distracted, aggressive, or drunk driver. Serious injuries from car accidents often result in expensive medical care and lost wages. When someone doesn’t share the road or fails to drive in a responsible manner, causing injury to you or your loved ones, contact a personal injury lawyer without delay.

Top Causes of Car Accidents

Despite numerous public safety campaigns against drunk driving, the problem continues to exist. Advances in smartphone technology are creating opportunities for distracted driving. And, anger continues to plaque drivers as they lead stressful lives with little to no free time. As long as drivers make poor choices when getting behind the wheel, your life is at risk.

Here are the top causes of car accidents, according to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety:

Distracted Driving

A survey by the foundation found that 78 percent of drivers believe texting while driving is a significant danger to other drivers. Yet, nearly 35 percent of those surveyed admitted to texting or sending an email from behind the wheel. Fifty-eight percent of survey participants believe talking on a cell phone while driving is dangerous, with 49 percent admitting to the behavior.

Additional research from the AAA Foundation discovered that a person talking on a cell phone while driving is up to four times more likely to crash. Those who text are up to eight times more likely to crash.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that at 55 miles per hour, sending or reading a text takes your eyes off the road for about five seconds—the length of a football field. The thought that sending a text “only takes a second,” can result in a lifetime of medical care for another driver.

Distracted driving isn’t limited to cell phones. Anything that takes your eyes off the road is a distraction. Applying makeup, changing the music station, or reaching for an object all count as distracted driving. The CDC cites three main categories of distraction:

  • Visual – Taking your eyes off the road
  • Manual – Taking your hands off the wheel
  • Cognitive – Taking your mind off driving

What makes texting and driving so dangerous is that the action involves all three categories of distraction, according to the CDC.

Aggressive Driving

When a driver acts in a negligent way that is deliberate and with no regard for safety, their behavior constitutes aggressive driving. As the demands of our personal and work lives demand more, our stress levels rise. In turn, aggressive driving escalates on our nation’s highways, especially during rush hour. The time pressure involved with getting to work or returning home carries over into our driving behaviors. Examples of aggressive driving include:

  • Tailgating
  • Cutting in front of another driver then slowing down
  • Running red lights
  • Blocking cars that are attempting to pass or change lanes
  • Speeding in heavy traffic

Aggressive driving can quickly escalate to road rage. Signs of road rage include:

  • Running another car off the road
  • Throwing objects at another vehicle
  • Ramming or sideswiping another vehicle

A recent AAA Foundation survey reports that 87 percent of participants admitted to aggressive driving or road rage behavior at least once during the previous year.

Drug Impaired Driving

The nation’s opioid crisis and the legalization of marijuana in several states are causes of concern for driver safety. The Governor’s Highway Safety Association (GHSA) cites both issues as contributing factors to the latest drug-impaired driving numbers. The GHSA reports that, in 2016, the most recent data available, 50.5 percent of drug-positive drivers tested positive for two or more drugs.

More than 100 people die every day in the United States due to opioid addiction or overdose. As standards for establishing legal limits for marijuana vary throughout the nation, marijuana is only legal in Florida for medical use. Driving under the influence of the drug is dangerous, no matter whether the driver has a medical prescription or not. Marijuana for recreational use is legal in Washington state, however, the same rules apply—smoking the drug and driving do not mix.

Drunk Driving

The issue of drinking and driving never goes away. Why do people choose to drink and drive? The answers from a recent survey provide some insight into this dangerous decision:

  • Most people believe they can drive after a few drinks with no problem; the alcohol gives them a false sense of feeling invincible.
  • Their home isn’t far away and they can drive the short distance safely.
  • They think they won’t get caught.

Drunk drivers continue to take risks, placing other drivers in danger of serious injuries. If you or a loved one has experienced serious injuries due to the negligent behavior of another driver, contact the Boohoff Law Firm today.

Call the Boohoff Law Firm if an Auto Accident Injures You

At the Boohoff Law Firm, we believe no one should suffer physically, financially, and emotionally due to the reckless behavior of another driver. While we all take a risk when we get behind the wheel, those who choose to do so after drug or alcohol use are making a dangerous choice. Other dangerous choices include sending and receiving texts and deliberately driving in an aggressive manner.

Teens Safe Cars: The Best Vehicles for Protecting Your Teen

Teen Car Accident Lawyer in Seattle Washington

Obtaining your driver’s license is one of life’s important milestones. As a teen, your license is your ticket to more independence and additionally, more responsibility. While parents wish to protect their children from harm no matter their age, letting them get behind the wheel alone is hard. The good news is there are safe cars on the market that protect teens, in a variety of price ranges and make/model choices.

What Defines Safety in Cars for Teens

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) conducted extensive research into which cars are best for teen drivers. The institute based their findings upon the four following safety principles:

  • Vehicles should have the best safety ratings possible. This means a four or five-star rating, based upon the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) safety rating guidelines.
  • Big, heavy vehicles are best. Not only do they protect teens in the event of a crash, but studies also show that teens are less likely to crash them in the first place.
  • Electronic stability control (ESC) is imperative. This feature helps teens maintain control on curves and slippery roads.
  • Stay away from vehicles with horsepower. Powerful engines are simply too tempting for teens to try out, placing themselves at greater risk for a crash.

Your teen may want a cuter, more attractive car like that of a mini car. Safety must overrule looks when it comes to a vehicle for your teen. While the IIHS does not include mini cars on their list of recommended vehicles, they do include small and midsize SUVs.

In addition to the safety list above, the IIHS encourages parents to research outstanding recalls for any used vehicle they intend to purchase. This is easily done using the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).

Best Teen Vehicle Choices for Price Ranges of $20,000 and Less

The IIHS list of best vehicle choices for price ranges of $20,000 and under uses Kelley Blue Book values from September of 2018. The vehicles earned favorable ratings from the IIHS and four to five stars from the NHTSA. The list includes the following vehicles:

Midsize Category

  • Volkswagen Passat, 2013 and newer
  • Volvo S60, 2011 and newer
  • Ford Fusion, 2013 and newer
  • Subaru Legacy, 2013 and newer
  • Honda Accord Coupe, 2013 and newer

Large Cars

  • Volvo S80, 2007 and newer
  • Ford Taurus, 2013 and newer
  • Chevrolet Impala, 2015 and newer
  • Infiniti M37/Q70, 2013 and newer
  • Toyota Avalon, 2015 and newer

Small SUVs

  • Mazda CX-5, 2014 and newer
  • Fiat 500X, 2016 and newer
  • Nissan Rogue, 2014 and newer
  • Subaru Forrester, 2014 and newer
  • Buick Encore, 2015 and newer

Small Pick Up Truck

  • Toyota Tacoma Access cab, 2016 or newer

Large Pick-Up Truck

  • Toyota Tundra, double cab, 2014 or newer

The IIHS also lists vehicles receiving a good rating that lists for under $10,000. This list is available on the IIHS website.

The Latest in Teen Driving Technology

Car manufacturers are developing new ways for parents to supervise their teen drivers without having to ride with them. Ford developed the MyKey system that enforces good driving habits such as buckling up. The “Belt-Minder” chimes and will mute car speakers until your teen buckles up. Parents of teens driving certain model Chevrolets can access in-car driving reports. These reports help parents better monitor their teen’s driving habits so that they can provide guidance for safer driving habits.

If a newer model car with the latest technology isn’t financially feasible, consider downloading a safe driving app. While smartphones and teen driving are a dangerous combination, certain apps can serve as a safeguard against dangers such as texting and driving.

The Life360 app has many features that appeal to parents. These features include location tracking, speed monitoring and text alerts for hard braking, rapid acceleration, and crashes. The app also has a driver safety mode feature and 27/7 driver care support. The Life360 app is available for both Android and iOS phones.

When Another Driver Crashes Into Your Teen

No amount of protection or technology can prevent a reckless driver from crashing into your teen’s vehicle. While your teen may drive defensively and in the safest car possible, a negligent driver speeding, driving impaired, or distracted can cause your teen serious harm.

Dangerous drivers are all around us and represent all ages, from teens to seniors. A crash is a scary moment for anyone, especially for someone who is new to driving. A serious crash can result in injuries ranging from broken bones to serious head trauma.

Having an injured teen results in medical bills, emotional stress, and missed time from work. Your teen may need future surgeries and therapies moving forward. Holding the dangerous driver accountable for their actions requires the skills of a personal injury lawyer.

Call the Boohoff Law Firm After an Auto Accident Involving a Teen Driver

Most of us remember the feelings of freedom we experienced as teens when we received our driver’s license. Now, many of us our parents and we worry when our teens get behind the wheel. Fortunately, research like that of IIHS help us decide on the right car and new technologies provide opportunities for peace-of-mind.

Unfortunately, other drivers aren’t as proactive or cautious when it comes to driving. Their haste to get one car ahead, their decision to drink and drive, and their bad habits of texting while driving put all of us at risk.

At the Boohoff Law Firm, we believe drivers of all ages should share the road. Teaching new drivers the proper skills is essential for developing good drivers. When another driver fails to obey laws and causes serious harm to your teen driver, it’s time to reach out to our highly experienced legal team.

If your teen was seriously injured in a crash that was no fault of their own, or if another teen driver injured you, call us at (877) 999-9999 or contact us online.

Summertime Car Accidents—Increased Activity and Travel Require Extra Caution

Car Accident Lawyer in Seattle Washington

The sun is shining, school is out, and vacations loom ahead. Summertime is a time for enjoying the outdoors and for road trips with family. Increased activity on city streets and highways, however, can lead to summertime car accidents. Don’t ruin your summer fun by spending your vacation in the hospital. Use the following tips for driving defensively this summer:

Check Your Tires

As AAA points out, your tires are the only part of your car that touches the ground. Tires that are cracking, bulging, and that have breaks in the actual tread are a danger on hot pavement. At highway speeds, tires in this condition are at risk for a blowout. When this occurs, you can quickly lose control of your car.

Before any road trip, check your tires for tread depth, inflation, and overall condition. AAA recommends inflating your tires to manufacturers specifications, located on the inside of the door jamb, not the number on the tire.

Avoid Driving Drowsy

There are only so many hours in your vacation time so the need to make good time while driving appeals to many travelers. Driving without rest is dangerous. Consider the following statistics from AAA:

  • Missing just two to three hours of sleep in a 24 hour period can quadruple a driver’s crash risk
  • A driver who has less than 5 hours of sleep during a 24 hour period has crash risks similar to those of a drunk driver.

Symptoms of a drowsy driver include drifting between lanes and missing exits. To avoid driving while drowsy, take breaks from the road and take turns driving with other passengers.

Teen Drivers

When school is out, teen drivers take to the roadways, usually with a carload of their friends. Their inexperience along with congested highways filled with vacation traffic results in crashes that are sometimes deadly. The summertime problem of teen drivers and crashes is what AAA calls “The 100 Deadliest Days,” and includes the period between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Speeding and nighttime driving are two of the contributing factors cited by AAA. The organization estimates an average of 10 people killed a day during 2016 due to crashes involving teenagers—a 14 percent increase over 2015. Speaking with teens about the importance of safe driving habits is the best way of preventing crashes, according to AAA.

Construction Zones

If traveling to your vacation destination involves a major highway, chances are you will encounter a construction zone. Summertime is a popular time for highway projects due to the warmer weather.

The U.S Federal Highway Administration shares the following statistics regarding construction zone crashes within the past five years:

  • 4,400 people killed—85 percent of which were drivers or passengers
  • 200,000 people injured
  • Rear-end crashes from drivers failing to stop in time are the most common type of crash.
  • A loaded 80,000 lb tractor trailer requires almost 50 percent more stopping time than a car.

The administration encourages drivers to stay alert, merge into the correct lane, and to slow down. Speeding, distracted, and even drunk drivers place not only other drivers at risk, but also the construction workers at risk for death or serious injury.

Watch for Bicycles and Motorcycles

Summertime provides great opportunities for bicyclists and motorcyclists to enjoy the open road. While both have the same rights as you when it comes to sharing the road, crash injuries are often worse for them. The lack of protection from striking the side of your vehicle or the pavement can result in serious trauma to their body.

Whether the law requires a helmet for bicycles or motorcycles depends upon the state. Most states do have helmet laws for minors when it comes to bicycles, but not for adults. State laws can vary for motorcycles also, however research shows that helmets provide important protection in the event of a crash.

In addition to bicycles and motorcycles, summer drivers must watch for pedestrians. Enjoying the summer sunshine for some may mean going for a walk or a jog. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recommends the following actions for driving defensively in high pedestrian areas this summer:

  • Watch for pedestrians everywhere. Don’t focus solely on crosswalks as a pedestrian may step out in front of you any time, anywhere.
  • Never try to pass a vehicle stopped at a crosswalk. The very reason they stopped can create danger for you and a pedestrian if you try to pass.

Be Proactive for a Safe Summer

These tips provide helpful advice for safely enjoying your summer. The care you exercise while traveling, with your car maintenance, in talking with your teen, and in staying alert in traffic, can save your life and the life of those around you. When other drivers fail to take the same care, they can ruin not only your summer, but possibly the rest of your life. If a reckless and negligent driver caused you serious harm, seek justice by contacting a personal injury lawyer right away.

Call the Boohoff Law Firm if a Car Crash Injured You

Our legal team believes those who drive with careless disregard for other drivers must be held accountable for their actions. A serious injury as the result of a car crash may cause you severe physical, financial, and emotional stress.

Common Injuries to Watch for on Memorial Day: How to Make Your Celebration Safe

Accident Injury Lawyer in Seattle Washington

Even though summer doesn’t officially start until the 21st of June, many celebrate Memorial Day as the official start of summer vacation. Cook-outs, water sports, and partying with friends and family are popular activities. As with any celebration, the fun can quickly turn scary when someone experiences a serious injury. Here are a few common injuries to watch for this Memorial Day weekend:

Boating Accidents

Recreational boating is a fun sport that involves all types of boats, including motorboats. According to the U.S. Coast Guard, the top five contributing factors of motorboat accidents are:

  • Operator inattention
  • Improper lookout
  • Operator inexperience
  • Machinery failure
  • Alcohol use

Of the deaths reported by the Coast Guard in 2017, 449 were from drowning. Only 68 of the victims were wearing a life jacket—an incredible 370 were not. It is unknown if the remaining 11 victims wore life jackets.

Boating accidents, in addition to drowning, may result in one or more of the following injuries/conditions:

  • Trauma
  • Cardiac Arrest
  • Hypothermia

Injuries result from what the Coast Guard cites as key factors in accidents: collisions with a recreational vessel or with a fixed object. Stay safe this summer by not mixing alcohol and boating and by wearing a life jacket.

Drunk Driving

Summer holidays are a popular time for enjoying an alcoholic beverage. Taking the fun too far and getting behind the wheel is all too common throughout Memorial Day weekend. Some of the most common injuries from a drunk driving crash include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Broken bones

Injuries like that of a TBI may require a lifetime of medical and personal care. Spinal cord injuries often require home and vehicle modifications for power chairs.

No one should suffer due to another driver’s reckless behavior behind the wheel. Despite knowing better, many choose to drink and drive due to excuses such as they “don’t live far away” or “no other transportation was available.” These excuses are just that—excuses for their reckless decision.

If you or someone you love is seriously injured due to a drunk driver over the Memorial Day weekend, contact a personal injury lawyer without delay.

Burns From Fireworks and Campfires

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), there are more than one million burn injuries each year in the United States. More than 53 percent of these injuries last year were from fireworks. While more closely associated with the Fourth of July, fireworks, especially sparklers, are a fun way to celebrate the arrival of summer.

For those camping over the Memorial Day weekend, campfires are of special concern. Most cooking camp cooking gear is made of light aluminum, which conducts heat faster than any other metal. The bare-metal handles are extremely hot-to-the-touch when cooking over a campfire.

Another popular campfire activity is roasting marshmallows. Here are some tips for keeping you and your little ones safe around a campfire:

  • Build the fire on level ground and surround it with rocks to contain the flames.
  • Use a stick long enough for roasting the marshmallows that children cannot feel the fire from where they stand.
  • If a marshmallow catches on fire, don’t try to blow out the flames. Stomp the fire out on the ground and start over with a fresh marshmallow.
  • Don’t leave a campfire unintended.
  • When you are ready to extinguish the fire, pour water on it until the hissing noise stops. Do not try to bury a fire.

A smoldering fire that isn’t completely out poses a real danger to young children. Campfire burns are more commonly caused by embers rather than flames. Young children can easily fall into a campfire, resulting in serious injuries.

There are three major types of burns:

  • First degree – This is the mildest form of burn categories and effects the first layer of your skin.
  • Second degree – More serious than the 1st degree, this category includes burns beyond the first layer of skin and can include blisters.
  • Third degree – The most severe type of burns, third degree burns through every layer of skin. Never try to treat third degree burns yourself; call 911 immediately. Do not try to remove a patient’s clothing and if possible, raise the injury above the person’s heart.

A campfire adds a festive atmosphere to any gathering. It is important to practice the utmost safety precautions and care so that you protect yourself, your guests, and the property around you.
