Motorcycle Riding Safety Tips
For those of you who share the same passion, there is no better feeling than riding a motorcycle. The wind in your face, the roaring of your engine, the speed and the freedom you experience. There is nothing in life that could compare to the magnificent sense of liberty that a motorcycle provides you.
However, motorcycles are extremely dangerous, if you are not conscious and responsible for your driving and safety. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Motorcyclists were about 26 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a crash per vehicle mile traveled in 2012 and five times more likely to be injured.
At Big Dog Wraps and Graphics we love motor vehicles and motorcycles are no exception. Therefore, we would like to share today some safety tips to apply when riding your motorcycle.
According to the NHTSA latest numbers, In 2013, motorcycle fatalities fell 6.4 percent to 4,668 from 4,986 in 2012. In 2012, 60 out of every 100,000 registered motorcycles was involved in a fatal crash, compared with only 14 out of every 100,000 passenger cars.
To avoid fatal accidents the first thing is always to wear your helmet. It doesn’t matter where you are going or if it is a long ride or a pretty short one.
In Colorado, 75 riders and 4 passengers were killed in motorcycle crashes in 2012 compared to 78 in 2011—52 (69%) of those riders and all 4 (100%) of those motorcycle passengers were not wearing a helmet.
If you are going out with a partner, never combine motorcycles and alcohol and be aware that riding with a passenger requires even more skill than riding alone.
