Experts encourage motorcycle safety ahead of summer

For many people in California, the excitement that comes with riding a motorcycle is amplified by the adrenaline rush and unknown adventures that lie ahead. Because motorcycles are not as well-protected as other forms of transportation, it is imperative that people pay close attention to their surroundings and take adequate measures to protect themselves while riding. 

With May being Motorcycle Awareness Month, added attention has been drawn to what can be done to prevent dangerous accidents from happening. While many people may be satisfied with having their license and motorcycle insurance, an endorsement is also necessary before people are allowed to legally drive a motorcycle on public roads. This course can also help people to learn how to better operate their motorcycle. People should be vigilant in watching for hazards in the road including animals and other wildlife, especially at nighttime when visibility may be poor. 

Proper safety gear including a helmet, gloves, boots and clothing that holds up against abrasion are critical for people to avoid fatal injuries if they are involved in an accident. It is recommended that people keep at least one car's length between them and the vehicle in front of them. Outfitting their bike and their clothing with reflective strips can help increase their visibility for other motorists on the road. 

If people have been injured in a motorcycle accident and are facing the aftermath, an attorney may be able to provide support during an often-difficult time. A legal professional has both the experience and education to help people in their quest to seek compensation in motorcycle collisions.
