There’s nothing better on a beautiful Indiana day than getting out on your bike for a long ride. Soon it’ll be perfect riding weather for doing just that, but before you pull your motorcycle out this year, take a minute to read these top 3 motorcycle safety tips.
- Wear proper protective gear—The state of Indiana doesn’t require all riders wear a helmet, but it’s a good idea to wear one anyway. A helmet is the most critical piece of protective gear for motorcyclists, as it can be the difference between walking away from an accident and a debilitating injury.
- Be aware—The biggest threat facing motorcyclists on Indiana roads is other drivers. Be hyperaware of your surroundings at all times. Don’t assume other drivers will see you or understand your intentions. Drive defensively to arrive safe.
- Plan ahead—Inclement weather can turn a fun afternoon outing into a tough, dangerous ride. Check the weather before setting out. In addition, never ride without a cell phone or your license.
Even the safest motorcyclists can still be in a serious accident. If you’ve been injured, call our Indiana motorcycle attorneys today. We’ll investigate the cause of your accident and protect your rights to compensation. Call today.
