Motorcycle Safety for Ann Arbor Cyclists

Information About Motorcycle Safety

In actual fact, there is an inherent risk involved in riding motorcycles that is not present when riding in a passenger vehicle. As motorcycles lack any kind of enclosed protection, as well as airbags or seatbelts, the rider puts themselves in danger any time they venture out onto the road or highway. However, there are safety precautions one can take before one gets on their bike. And while they may not help one avoid all injury in the event of an accident, they may significantly reduce ones chances of being seriously injured or killed. Some of the safety precautions include:

  • Thorough education as to the physics of a bike's handling, as well as insight into its mechanical workings
  • Always wearing a helmet when riding
  • Always wearing eye protection if the helmet does not provide this
  • A considerable amount of practice in the safe and responsible operation of a bike
  • Never drinking and driving
  • Wearing bright clothes that other motorists can easily see, even at night

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, despite your safety measures, it is recommended you hire an Ann Arbor motorcycle accident attorney who can assist you in filing an insurance claim for the damages you have sustained.
