Motorcycle Safety: Find Out How to Prevent Accidents

Motorcycle riders generally face a higher risk of accidents than operators of cars. While accidents do happen, riders can take steps to reduce their risks.

Follow these tips to reduce your risk of motorcycle accident injuries:

  • Use a helmet. Without head protection, you are three times more likely to die from injuries than riders who wear helmets. You can also reduce the risk of traumatic brain injury. Motorcycle riders and their passengers in Tennessee must wear helmets.
  • Dress appropriately. Durable clothing such as leather pants, coats and gloves work to protect your skin should you get in an accident.
  • Make sure your tires are properly inflated. Adequate tire pressure allows bikers to safely and easily take turns and corners.
  • Inspect your bike before each ride. You may notice visible damage or potential hazards, including loose bolts.

How motorcycle safety precautions can save your life

Motorcyclists are 27 times more likely to die in an accident than the occupants of the other vehicle, according to studies. As a motorcyclist, your risk of injury is five times greater than the risk of injury for occupants in the other vehicle. Motorcycle safety precautions can save your life.
