Motorcycle Safety

The biggest reason for motorcycle accidents is car drivers not seeing the motorcyclist. These incidents are greatest at intersections, driveways, and during rush hours. There are things you can do to reduce these types of accidents and protect yourself.

  • Good motorcycle lighting is essential to being seen. Although most motorcycles come with a single headlight, a rider can inexpensively purchase additional lights for the front of the motorcycle.
  • Rear lights can be enhanced with modules that will flash the brake lights to get the attention of an automobile behind the motorcycle.
  • It goes without saying that bright clothing will enhance the visibility of the motorcyclist.
  • Defensive driving techniques are taught at motorcycle safety classes. It is strongly recommended that all motorcyclists, no matter how many years they have been riding, take these classes.
