Motorcycle Safety Tips

Motorcycle-related deaths and injuries are on the rise. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 1.74 per 100,000 people in the U.S. died frommotorcycle accidents in 2008, a 55% increase over the 2001 rate of 1.12 per 100,000.

Similarly, there were a total of 175,000 motorcycle-related injuries in 2008, a sharp rise from the 120,00 recorded in 2001.

Motorcycle riding can be fun, but it can also be dangerous. Here are some tips for riding safely:

  • Wear a helmet. Wearing a helmet can significantly reduce the risk of serious injury or death in the event that you're involved in an accident.
  • Never ride after you've been drinking. Alcohol impairs reflexes and quickness of decision-making, which is extremely dangerous when you're riding a motorcycle. Call a cab.
  • Wear protective clothing. There's a reason for the stereotype of the leather jacket-clad motorcyclist: heavy clothing provides a level of injury protection.
  • Wear bright clothing. It makes you more noticeable to surrounding vehicle drivers.
  • Maintain a safe speed.
  • Be careful. Especially on slippery surfaces and gravel, which can make you lose control and go flying.

Unfortunately, not all accidents can be avoided. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, contact the Kyle Law Firm today. We will fight to get you the compensation you deserve.
