Atlanta Injury Blog > 2012 > July > Reduce Your Chances of a Motorcycle Injury with These Tips

Good weather and high gas prices mean there are more motorcycles and scooters on the road. Drivers of passenger cars and larger motor vehicles need to be aware of this fact so they can watch out for motorcyclists and scooter drivers. Oftentimes drivers of cars and trucks have a hard time seeing motorcycles, but there are many things that bikers can do to help reduce their chances of being involved and injured in a motorcycle accident.

10 Accident Prevention Tips for Motorcyclists

  1. Check the tires prior to taking a ride each time.
  2. Replace tires that are questionable.
  3. Frequently perform a visual check of the bike.
  4. Have routine maintenance done.
  5. Wear bright colored clothing and reflective gear every time you ride.
  6. Always wear a properly fitting helmet.
  7. Wear safety gear to minimize injuries in the event of a crash.
  8. Obey the road rules and traffic laws.
  9. Drive defensively.
  10. Make sure you are aware of road conditions.

5 Things NOT to Do as a Motorcyclist

  1. Don’t tailgate.
  2. Don’t weave in and out of traffic.
  3. Don’t drink and drive.
  4. Don’t speed.
  5. Don’t ride in a driver’s blind spots.

Although drivers of cars and trucks need to be better about checking their blind spots before changing lanes, motorcyclists can also help to prevent some crashes from occurring. By following these tips and going to motorcycle rider training or retraining classes, you can reduce your chances of being involved in a motorcycle crash.
