- By hitting potholes: where a local council has failed to keep the road in proper condition
- By car doors: when someone opens a car door without seeing a motorcyclist
- By other motorcyclists: when someone cuts a bend or overtakes too closely
- From spillages: diesel and oil can create slippery road conditions that can catch bikers out and lead to accidents
