How motorcycle riders can be safe after the snow melts

The snow is melting. It may not seem like it is, but take our word for it. The longer days and the higher angle of the sun means that spring will be here before you know it. For those who are really counting the days, spring will officially be here in about a week's time.

Spring means that motorcycles will be seen on the road again. It is almost like a yearly tradition. It's like they emerge from a winter slumber, roaring down roads and exemplifying the freedoms that we enjoy in our region of the country. However, with these freedoms come some risks. After all, motorcycle riders do not have the benefit of riding in a steel cage that will protect them in a crash. Because of this, motorcycle riders must be especially careful.

In the coming weeks, we will have more posts on motorcycle accidents. But for now, we will focus on things that motorcycle riders can do to be safe.

Wear a helmet - Not only is wearing a helmet the law in New York, it can help save your life in the event of an accident. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, head injuries are the leading cause of death of motorcycle riders. Don't be a statistic.

 Be seen - It is true that drivers need to see motorcyclists. But the reality is that some drivers do not. As such, riders should be vigilant about staying out of blind spots. This does not mean that riders bear the sole responsibility for avoiding accidents, but knowing that drivers can be irresponsible is half the battle.
