Preventing motorcycle accidents: What you need to know

The freedom of the open road and the thrill of the wind in your hair are two of the most common reasons why people ride motorcycles. Although it is a great pastime, it is essential to be safe while you are riding.

The motorcycle accident rate is creeping higher every year. Fortunately, there are a few things that you can do to prevent them.

Go back to school

Even if you pass the elementary motorcycle training course, you should continue your education. Laws, circumstances and methods can change. Additional training can keep you up-to-date on the latest in motorcycle safety.

Maintain your ride

Keeping your motorcycle properly maintained can prevent accidents. Regular check-ups and oil changes are vital to keeping your bike running right and prevent accidents due to equipment malfunction.

Wear protective clothing

While protective clothing will not prevent an accident, it can keep you from being severely injured during one. Besides keeping you safe, it is the law.

Know what to do after an accident

Knowing what to do and not to do after an accident can be crucial, particularly if you suffer an injury. Remember to call your insurance company, never sign anything until you are sure what it says and not to admit fault.

Be aware of what is around you

Defensive driving is important, but so are road conditions and awareness of other drivers. Keep in mind that just because you see them, doesn’t mean that they see you.

Even if you’ve been riding for years, motorcycle accidents still happen. Help prevent them by taking a few precautions before riding.
