Michigan motorcycle accident lawyer reminds drivers to share the road – let’s prevent motorcycle accidents and raise awareness
The sun is finally out and that means more bikers on the roads. As an accident lawyer who helps many people injured in motorcycle accidents, I want to share that May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) wants drivers and motorcyclists to share the road with each other – in efforts to prevent motorcycle accidents and deaths.
As I always say, one of the key factors in motorcycle safety is motorcycle helmet use.
o According to the NHTSA, motorcycle helmets saved 1,829 motorcyclists’ lives in 2008.
o Motorcycle helmets do not interfere with the rider’s vision or hearing.
Here’s a list of safe driving tips for bikers, and a list with safety tips for people driving around motorcyclists.
Please, always wear a motorcycle helmet. And if you have questions about motorcycle accidents and the law in Michigan, feel free to call one of the motorcycle lawyers at Michigan Auto Law at (800) 777-0028. We can answer all of your questions, and there’s no fee or obligation.
