Although fall is starting to set in, it does not mean motorcyclists are ready to put their bikes away. In fact, motorists in New Jersey and elsewhere can be seen riding throughout fall and even into winter. Thus, it is imperative that drivers remain attentive and aware of these vehicles, as failing to see one could result in a serious or even fatal collision.
Many motorcyclists in our state are hitting the streets and highways this summer, whether it is to get from point A to point B, take a scenic ride or simply for the fun of it. However, motorcycles do not offer the same protections to riders that automobiles do, such as seat belts, air bags and crumple zones. This leaves motorcyclists more vulnerable, should they be struck.
Spring is here, and as the weather continues to warm up more motorcyclists in New Jersey will be taking to the road on their bikes. Safety is an important issue when it comes to riding motorcycles, and one of the best precautions a biker can take is to wear a helmet.
New Jersey motorists should be aware that motorcycle accidents can occur at any time of the year. Therefore, it is important that motorists understand how to safely share the road with motorcyclists. This is because motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable when they are involved in a crash.
