How motorcycle riders can be safe during the holiday

With scores of people set to take to the road later this week for the Fourth of July holiday weekend, there will be many motorcycle riders along with them. Call it the result of higher gas prices or the natural progression of people who love the open road during the summer, but motorcycle accidents tend to increase during the summer. Because of this trend, drivers and riders alike must be vigilant.

The reasons may be obvious. Motorcycle riders don’t have the protection of being inside a vehicle. So when they crash, they tend to meet the pavement personally. As such, riders are in much more of a vulnerable position when it comes to being in an accident. As such, there are several things that riders can do to protect themselves this coming weekend and throughout the summer.

Avoid alcohol consumption – It’s no secret that part of the Fourth of July celebration involves drinking. However, alcohol can affect a rider’s judgment, which is so vital to maintaining safety. So if you want to avoid the possibility of a crash, avoid alcohol.

Be seen at all costs – You’ve probably heard of the public service announcements imploring drivers to “start seeing motorcycles.” This is more than just a commercial saying, it is reality. By wearing bright colors and staying out of driver’s blind spots, motorcycle riders can avoid the possibility of not being seen.

Wear your helmet – Even though it is not required by state law (unless you are under the age of 18), a helmet is likely the best way to avoid serious brain injuries. Also, like we noted before, a bright, unique helmet is helpful with staying seen.

We wish our readers a happy and safe holiday weekend.
