What Are Some Motorcycle Safety Tips?
Motorcycle riders face a greater risk of injury than other motorists who drive vehicles that offer more protection. Consequently, it pays to be skilled and educated about avoiding serious accidents. In many motorcycle accidents, the other driver is at fault. If you are seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, Cincinnati motorcycle accident lawyers can protect your rights and help you seek compensation.
The Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) is a non-profit organization that promotes motorcycle safety and provides public information. Well-known motorcycle manufacturers, such as Harley-Davidson, Honda, Suzuki and Yamaha ― to name a few ― sponsor the MSF. The MSF booklet provides numerous tips and information, such as:
- Protective attire to wear when riding
- Your legal responsibilities
- Special handling of situations, such as emergency braking, riding in rain, coping with skids and rough surfaces, etc.
- Motorcycle controls and maintenance
- Various street and highway conditions
- Group riding
- Motorcycle loads
- Dangers of drugs and drinking
Some motorcycle accidents in Cincinnati may be unavoidable. However, the more prepared you are, the more developed your riding skills are and the more alert you are when riding, the better chances you have of surviving a motorcycle accident and minimizing your injury.
