Motorcycles do not have the same safety features as motor vehicles and do not offer the same levels of protection to their operators and passengers and, therefore, motorcycle accidents can be amongst the most devastating traffic accidents. They often result in very serious injuries and may wreak havoc on your or your family’s finances and personal lives.
While motorcycle accidents can be the fault of negligent motorcycle drivers, they are more often the result of negligent motor vehicle drivers, despite misconceptions to the contrary. Accidents often occur because motor vehicle drivers are not alert to the presence of motorcyclists sharing the road. Avoid becoming just another statistic by paying serious attention to safety.
Here are some safety tips for all motorcycle enthusiasts:
- Always wear your helmet
- Get your motorcycle license
- Get professional training
- Don’t drink and drive
- Wear protective clothing
- Maintain your motorcycle
- Don’t share lanes
- Know your skill level
- Be aware of common causes of motorcycle accidents
- Avoid road hazards
