Preventing Motorcycle Accidents – Part 1

July 11, 2012

Here are some of the tips for riders, offered by The Motorcycle Safety Foundation, to help prevent motorcycle accidents:

Be Properly Trained and Licensed – Half of all riders have never taken a proper safety class.

Wear a Helmet – Helmets prevent fatalities an estimated 37 percent of the time for drivers, and 41 percent for passengers in motorcycle accidents, according to the NHTSA.

Fools Gear, Cool Gear – What you wear can make it easier for drivers to see you and better protect you in a crash.

Never Drink and Drive – In 2010, 33 percent of cycling fatalities involved riders who were legally intoxicated.

Ride Within Your Skill Limits and Obey Traffic Laws – Don’t ride faster or farther than your abilities will allow.

Be a Lifelong Learner – Take advanced courses to brush up on the basics and keep improving your skills.
