How Motorcyclists can stay safe

Here are a few things you can do to stay safe this season:

  • Like it or not, wearing a DOT-approved helmet is a lifesaver.  The leading case of death in motorcycle accidents is head injury, and a motorcyclist not wearing a helmet is 40 percent more likely to die of a head injury.

  • Take a safety refresher course.  Most people aren’t able to cycle year-round, so brushing up on the basics is a good idea.  Not only can it help prevent accidents, it can reduce your risk of getting seriously injured if you are in an accident

  • Check your T-CLOCS.  That is, check your tires and wheels, controls, lights, oil, chassis, and stand before you ride.

  • Always be aware of your environment.  Be aware of other vehicles, road hazards, and traffic and weather conditions.
