I Just Started Riding A Motorcycle. How Can I Best Protect Myself From Injury?
Motorcycle accidents can have devastating effects. Take these precautionary steps to prevent getting in a motorcycle accident in Florida.
1. Always wear a helmet. Prevent head trauma by wearing a helmet at all times, including helmets for passengers.
2. Don’t drink and drive. Most motorcycle fatalities involve alcohol. Stay dry.
3. Be seen. Wear a reflective patch on your back and don’t make sudden turns.
4. Don’t weave. Lane splitting and changing lanes catch drivers off guard.
5. Avoid dangerous roads with hazardous conditions such as rain and potholes.
6. Slow down. Avoid speeding and tailgating.
7. Experience. Younger drivers get in more accidents because of lack of experience.
