Oklahoma Highway Patrol Emphasizes Motorcycle Safety

By Car Accident Help on April 14, 2011

With the warmer temperatures of spring and summer come more motorcycles on Oklahoma roads and highways. Due to the high number of motorcyclist deaths in recent years, Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP) will be pushing motorcycle safety for the 2nd year in row, according to Fox23.com.

According to the OHP, 401 motorcyclists died in crashes in the state between 2006 and 2010. More specifically, 61 riders were killed in 2006, 74 in 2007, 87 in 2008, 105 in 2009, and 74 in 2010. The OHP began pushing motorcycle safety in 2010 as a result of the increase in motorcycle accident-related deaths between 2006 and 2009 and it seems to have worked since the number of motorcycle rider deaths dropped to 74 in 2010. The hope is that numbers will go down even more with emphasis on motorcycle safety this year.

Motorcycle riders must drive defensively at all times because they share the road with much bigger and heavier vehicles that don’t always see them. Most Oklahoma motorcycle crashes are caused by other motorists and so it is necessary to have safety foremost in one’s mind. Motorcyclists, in addition to having a proper Oklahoma motorcycle license and driving defensively, must wear a proper helmet, padded jacket, sturdy pants, reinforced gloves, and sturdy boots to protect themselves from the elements, falls, and other vehicles. In the case of a motorcycle accident caused by another vehicle, the injured motorcycle rider could file a personal injury claim against the at-fault party in order to receive compensation for their losses.

The experienced Oklahoma City personal injury attorneys at Maples Law Firm, LLP, can help injured Oklahoma motorcycle accident victims understand their legal rights so that they may make an informed decision about the best course of action for their specific situation.
