Top Tips for Motorcycle Riders

Did you know that motorcyclists accounted for 15% of all traffic fatalities in the United States in 2023? As the percentage of motorcycle accidents continues to grow, it is essential to keep certain safety tips in mind to ensure you stay as safe as possible on the road. 

Tip #1 Wear A Helmet: Wearing a helmet is absolutely crucial for motorcyclists, as it significantly reduces the risk of head injuries and fatalities. Helmets are meticulously designed to absorb impact energy, effectively protecting the brain from trauma during a crash. To ensure maximum safety, it’s important to select a helmet that fits comfortably, covering your forehead without obstructing your vision in order to provide the best protection in an accident. 

Tip #2 Wear Extra Protective Gear: Wearing protective gear is a fundamental aspect of motorcycle safety, because it significantly enhances your protection in case of a fall or crash. Some examples of this gear include leather jackets, gloves, and boots. Leather/heavy denim jackets provide a layer of defense against abrasions, cuts, and road rash, which are common injuries for motorcyclists. Also, gloves can offer a better grip on the handlebars, improving your control over the motorcycle and in the event of a fall, they can also protect your hands from scrapes and fractures. Lastly, boots are essential for protecting your feet and ankles. They can offer extra support and are designed to protect against impacts, burns from the exhaust pipe, and other potential injuries.

Tip #3 Stay Visible On The Road: Using your headlights during both day and night is crucial for ensuring you’re seen by other drivers. Running your lights during the daytime increases your visibility in all weather conditions, while your nighttime headlights illuminate the road ahead and alert other drivers of your presence. Additionally, applying reflective materials to your bike and clothing further increases your visibility, especially during weather situations like rain or fog.

Tip #4 Obey Traffic Laws: Following all traffic rules, including speed limits, traffic lights, and lane markings, is essential for maintaining your safety as well as the safety of the other drivers on the road. Adhering to speed limits helps prevent accidents and allows for better reaction times, while obeying traffic lights and signals ensures coordinated movement and reduces the risk of collisions. Lastly, staying within the lane markings helps manage the flow of traffic and minimizes dangerous lane changes.
