May is National Motorcycle Awareness Month

On Behalf of | May 7, 2021 | General Motorcycle |

May is National Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, and it serves as a good time to remind motorists on how they should drive while in the vicinity of motorcycles, and how motorcyclists can navigate California’s streets and highways safely. The following is an overview of motorcycle safety for both motorists and motorcyclists.

Motorcycle awareness

Since most vehicles on the road are automobiles, it is easy for motorists to not pay attention to motorcyclists. However, this is a serious problem. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, when a car strikes a motorcyclist, it is usually the car who has violated the motorcyclist’s right of way. Motorcycles are smaller vehicles, making it important for motorists to check their mirrors and blind spots while driving. Motorists may also not anticipate the ways motorcyclists must operate their vehicles to ride safely. For example, road debris that may not be a hazard to a motorist may present a serious danger to a motorcyclist, forcing a motorcyclist to change lanes or otherwise avoid the hazard.

Motorcycle safety

Motorcyclists can do their part by wearing a helmet. In 2017, just over 1,900 of motorcyclists who lost their lives in a motorcycle accident were not wearing a helmet when the crash occurred. Helmets have been shown to be about 37% effective in preventing motorcycle fatalities. Motorcyclists may also want to invest in antilock brakes, take safety education courses and understand traffic laws. They will also want to avoid drunk or distracted riding and operate their vehicles defensively.
