There's a line of thought for bikers that says "Every accident is your own fault" - certainly one that is pushed by some European motorcycle journos. But wait a minute, that's not right is it? Then you start thinking about it....

Lets take this accident here for example.. sure it was technically and legally her fault, but you are the one at most risk. If you'd looked both ways before entering the junction you'd probably have seen her running the light. And what if it wasn't someone who was running the light but who's brakes had failed? (All mechanics make mistakes sometimes) They couldn't have stopped and motorcyclist jam sandwiches would have followed.

Over 3/4 off road accidents happen at junctions. Take resposibility for yourself and look...
