Motorcycle safety: 2 ways to avoid injurious accidents

If you're not doing everything you can to avoid vehicle collisions while you're riding a motorcycle - and if you're not constantly attentive to safety and defensive driving - you're putting your life at risk every time you get on the road. Motorcycle riding doesn't have to be like "Russian Roulette." Yes, it will always be dangerous and come with serious risks, but if you adhere to the following motorcycle safety tips, you can significantly reduce your chances of being involved in a collision.

Don't ride after drinking (period): Wouldn't it be great if we could go through life completely drunk without any consequences? Unfortunately, it's not possible. It's especially not possible if you're driving a motorcycle. Refrain from riding after any amount of alcohol and you will dramatically reduce your chances of getting hurt or killed in a collision.

Consider lane splitting as a safety technique: When done the wrong way, lane splitting is a recipe for disaster. When done the right way, motorcyclists can avoid getting hit from behind by splitting lanes - a.k.a., riding between two lanes of traffic. Definitely make sure you know what you're doing with this one, but it could help you avoid a crash.

There are so many more motorcycle safety techniques that every biker needs to learn. If you want to be safer on the road, make sure you take a motorcycle safety course to hone your skills. Learning more safety tricks could help you avoid the need to pursue a personal injury claim after a catastrophic accident. An ounce of effort is worth about a thousand pounds of cure when it comes to the chance of avoiding a serious injury.
