Ways to keep motorcyles safe this motorcycle season

With Maryland motorcycle season headed towards full swing, it is important for everyone to take the safety of motorcyclists on the roadways seriously. Unfortunately, motorcycle riders are especially vulnerable on the roadways and are 5 times more likely to be injured and 29 times more likely to be killed in a car or motorcycle accident than those in passenger vehicles.

There are important steps drivers can take to help ensure the safety of motorcycle riders this motorcycle season, which begin with being alert and remaining attentive to motorcyclists on the roadways. Drivers should never driver while distracted or impaired. In many motorcycle accident circumstances, the motorcycle's right of way was interfered with or the motorcycle rider was cut off that resulted in the accident.

Drivers can also exercise additional caution on weekends when more motorcycle riders are out on the roadways and make sure to always check their blind spots for motorcycle riders. Drivers should always keep in mind that motorcycles need adequate room to maneuver and should never attempt to share a lane with a motorcycle. Especially on uneven roadway surfaces, including potholes and pavement transitions, drivers should account for the additional space and maneuverability motorcycles require.

Personal injury legal protections can help motorcycle accident victims when they have been harmed by a negligent or careless driver. Because of their vulnerability on the roadways, motorcycle accident victims can suffer serious injuries in a motorcycle accident, which is why it is necessary for them to be familiar with the legal options protecting them when harmed.
