Motorcycle Crash attorney

Your favorite Motorcycle Crash attorney wants to remind you May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. Statistics have shown that motorcyclists are 28 times more likely to die in motor vehicle accidents than passenger vehicles. Studies like this show why motorcycle safety awareness is so critical in today’s world. Everyone on the road must practice motorcycle safety at all times.

Motorcycle safety as a rider

If you are going to ride a motorcycle, you must follow these three steps, wear the appropriate gear, follow the rules of the road, and do not ride under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Wearing the appropriate safety gear

You should always wear the proper safety gear when riding your motorcycle. Wearing a high-quality helmet, full leather jacket, protective pants, gloves, and boots will protect you in an accident and make you feel more stylish when riding.

Follow the rules of the road

Learn the different rules of the road for a motorcycle compared to a car. Completing a motorcycle safety course is valuable to confirm you have the adequate knowledge and experience to ride a motorcycle safely. Do not place yourself in harm’s way by breaking traffic laws or not knowing the proper rules of the road for motorcyclists.

Do not ride under the influence

Drugs and alcohol, even prescribed medications, will negatively affect your judgment and ability to ride safely. Any of these substances can severely affect your reaction time and situational awareness. Motorcycle riding is dangerous even when fully alert. Riding under the influence of drugs or alcohol is extremely dangerous and could cost you your life.

Motorcycle safety as a passenger vehicle driver

Anyone driving should know how to make the road safer for motorcyclists and everyone else on the road.

Avoid distracted driving

Always be vigilant when on the road, especially when changing lanes. No cell phones while driving. It could be the difference between an unfortunate accident and a safe trip.

Check twice for motorcycles

Motorcycle accidents often start with drivers missing them in their blind spots. Check twice, and save a life.

Obey all traffic laws

Same as on a motorcycle, you must follow all traffic laws to keep both yourself and others on the road safe.
