May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, and with the summer months only weeks away, it’s time to remind everyone to be on the alert, and to share the road with motorcyclists – safely!
Both motorcyclists and motorists need to be aware of their surroundings. Checking blind spots, mirrors and using turn signals are necessary when changing lanes and when passing.
With distracted driving still on the rise, we’re seeing an increase in motorcycle accidents in Central Florida.
Distracted driving can mean the difference between seeing a motorcyclist or not when preparing to change lanes. Don’t let one text change anyone’s life forever – including yours!
Riders need to take precautions as well. Take a defensive driving course, wear protective gear and keep your bike in its best working condition.
Also, be aware of any road hazards and dangerous weather conditions. Most of all, enjoy your ride and make it home again safe and sound.
No matter how skilled or attentive riders are, they are no match for a negligent, reckless or distracted driver, especially one who may be drinking and driving, or texting while driving.
