Preventing motorcycle accidents

October 13, 2009

Motorcycle riders are at a far greater risk of suffering a serious injury in an accident than someone riding in a passenger motor vehicle. A motorcycle has none of the protective features that help keep those in a car safe – a metal frame, windshield, seatbelts and airbags.

Because motorcycle riders face an increased risk of injury, they should practice vigilance and caution when on the road and take proactive measures to avoid accidents. Here are some of the things motorcycle riders can do to avoid accidents and minimize the risk of serious injury if they do get into an accident:

  • Never drink and drive
  • Be sure your bike is in good repair and working condition
  • Keep watch in your side mirrors for approaching vehicles
  • Make yourself visible at night with reflective clothing
  • Always wear a helmet
  • Wear other protective gear such as gloves, eye protection, long pants, boots and a riding jacket
  • Follow all of the rules of the road
  • Maintain a safe speed
  • Exercise extra caution when passing through intersections
  • Be mindful of how inclement weather affects visibility and road conditions
  • Make sure that other drivers can see you at all times
