The investigation into the accident is going to be incredibly important, especially when that accident involves a motorcycle. People tend to have a big bias when it comes to motorcyclists, and are ready to just assume that they’re at fault for any accidents they’re involved in. As we see, that’s not the case. Evidence is going to be the best way to prove that, hence the investigation. If there’s any doubt as to who did what in an accident, evidence will be able to put it to bed, so its importance really can’t be overstated.
