As the Los Angles roadways get more crowded, your chances of being injured in a motorcycle accident increase too. With the majority of motorcycle accidents occurring between a motorcycle and a passenger car, here are some Los Angeles motorcycle safety tips to help decrease your chances of an accident and keep you safe while enjoying this unique form of transportation:
- Always wear a helmet when driving or riding a motorcycle. The facts speak for themselves—riders without a helmet are 40% more likely to suffer a fatal injury when in an accident.
- Invest in proper motorcycle clothing and gear to help protect you should you ever get hit or otherwise lose control of your bike. While t-shirt and jeans may look the coolest, proper gear will not only make for a more comfortable ride but also help to protect your skin should you slide out.
- Defensive driving is essential. You already know that many cars are just not paying attention to you on the road. With that in mind, you need to be extra vigilant when riding your motorcycle around cars. Keeping a safe distance from cars and being mindful of upcoming road conditions are two easy ways to stay safe on your bike.
- Watch for weather! Bad weather conditions can spell disaster for a motorcycle. Not only is it more difficult to manage your bike, but car drivers are also struggling with the same difficult conditions. If possible, avoid riding your bike during bad weather.
Unfortunately, even following every motorcycle safety tip out there can still result in an accident. If you have been injured recently, you should get in touch with an experienced motorcycle accident attorney immediately.
