Under Minnesota law, a vehicle turning left must yield to oncoming traffic. Drivers who are making left turns are typically looking for full-sized vehicles and proceed through the intersection when they don't see one. In too many cases, however, these drivers fail to see oncoming motorcyclists and turn directly into their paths.
A motorcyclist traveling 30 miles per hour or more can suffer severe and often life-threatening injuries when he or she crashes at full speed into the side of a left-turning vehicle. The drivers who fail to see motorcyclists and turn in front of them should be held liable for the harm they cause in these accidents.
