How We Can Keep Our Motorcyclists Safe

The sun on your skin. The wind on your face. Just you, the road, and the setting sun, baby. Yes, motorcycles are fast, fun, and liberating. But nothing brings the fun to a screeching halt like an accident. Whether you’re on two wheels or four, everyone on the road is responsible for the safety of our most vulnerable drivers. Motorcyclists are 35 times more likely to die in an accident, according to the National Center for Statistics and Analysis. If we all abide by the following guidelines, we can bring that number down significantly. For Car and Truck Drivers If you’ve been driving for years it can be hard to make a change, since much of your driving is habit-based.

For Those on Two Wheels If you’re legally operating a motorcycle in the United States, it means you passed a motorcycle safety class. Nothing we can tell you about safety will be news. Yet, how many times do you see someone driving down the road in a T-shirt and no helmet? When you hit the road, you have a responsibility to yourself and your loved ones to be properly protected by your clothing and helmet. That doesn’t mean biking uncomfortably. The Motorcycle Safety Foundation encourages you to “dress for the ride as well as the crash.” Uncomfortable riders are more likely to get into an accident. These simple practices will save lives. We love our bikers, so whether your preferred mode of transportation is on two wheels or four, be careful out there!
