Proper Oklahoma Motorcycle Safety for Summer

By Car Accident Help on May 10, 2011

Motorcycling is a fun and social activity enjoyed by many during the warmer months of the year. A sense of freedom usually accompanies riding a motorcycle, but danger also tends to tag along for the ride. Most Oklahoma motorcycle accidents occur, not because of the rider, but because of other motorists who do not know how to share the road with motorcycles. Because motorcyclists are much less protected than drivers of other motor vehicles, they need to practice riding safely and defensively to protect themselves in the event of a motorcycle crash in Oklahoma. The following safety guidelines can help motorcyclists stay safe on the road:

  1. Take a safety course.
  2. Get your motorcycle license.
  3. Wear a full-face helmet, sturdy jacket with full sleeves, thick pants, reinforced gloves, and boots that protect the ankle.
  4. Drive defensively to avoid inattentive or reckless motorists.
  5. Ride in a staggered formation when with a group.
  6. Keep at least a two-second following distance from the vehicle in front of you.
  7. Only pass motorcycles or other vehicles individually and when it can be done safely.

Unfortunately these guidelines cannot prevent every motorcycle accident. There is only so much a motorcyclist can do to stay safe when another motorist is driving negligently or recklessly. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle crash caused by the actions of an inattentive, speeding, distracted, intoxicated, or otherwise negligent driver, you may be entitled to compensation for the losses associated with your injuries.
