Groundhog Day came with the expectation that we will have an early spring. That means that now is the perfect time for motorcycle riders to brush up on proper safety protocol for their journeys. It is also a good time to remind all drivers that being aware of motorcycles on the roadways is critical to helping everyone remain safe.
Many motorcyclists know the importance of wearing a helmet. If you are struck by a car, a helmet can mean the difference between a fatal head injury and one that isn't as serious. We know that no motorcyclist gets onto the roadways expecting that he or she will be injured in an accident, but wearing a helmet is a great preventative measure to take.
Another factor that can affect the safety of a biker has to do with the way other drivers behave. Motorcycles have a small profile, so they are harder to see than cars. This means that all drivers have to pay special attention for motorcycles. Looking in smaller spaces, such as around parked vehicles near an intersection, can help drivers to avoid hitting bikers.
It is also imperative that all drivers avoid driving under the influence. This includes motorcyclists and other drivers. Impaired driving can lead to horrible accidents that can lead to serious injuries or even deaths
