Safe Driving Tips for Motorcyclists

Motorcycle ridership is on the rise across the country, and New York is no exception. Every year, thousands of riders are injured or killed in motorcycle accidents. There are steps you can take to reduce the likelihood of being injured in an accident.

Safe Driving Tips for Motorcyclists

Maintain Your Bike – Motorcycles should be checked regularly to make sure that they’re in good working order.

Practice Safe Driving Skills –Obeying traffic rules, like speed limits, is critical to safety when driving a motorcycle.

Never Drive While Impaired or Distracted –You should never operate a motorcycle if you’ve consumed alcohol or any other substance that can impair your judgment. You should likewise avoid driving when you’re tired or fatigued.

Wear a Helmet – Wearing a motorcycle helmet is required under New York law. Many serious motorcycle accident injuries can be attributed to riders not wearing helmets, and head trauma is the number one cause of death or serious injury.

Invest in Good Gear –Protective gear and clothing can reduce injuries if you’re involved in a crash. Wear bright clothing and use retroreflective material.
