15 Jun TIPS FOR RIDING MOTORCYCLES DURING THE SUMMER
Posted By Gruenberg Kelly Della || 15-Jun-2018
The sun is out, the temperatures are up, and people are out on the road. Summer is a great time to enjoy a change of pace and venture out more often. Unfortunately, that means busy streets and crowded highways (especially in places like Long Island), and these create a heightened risk of motorcycle accidents and injuries in New York.
As a motorcyclist, you are always at risk of being overlooked by other drivers. When the roads become more crowded, you may become more likely to be hit by a careless driver. However, you can still get out there and enjoy the summer sun without putting yourself at risk.
How to Avoid Motorcycle Accidents in the Summer Months
There are a few things you can do to steer clear of accidents during the summer months:
- Invest in breathable layers (jacket, gloves, pants, etc.) that will keep you from dehydrating or overheating while riding.
- Always wear a helmet with a shield that will keep roadway debris, bugs, smog, and bright light out of your eyes.
- When you feel like you may be overheating, listen to your body, pull over, and seek shade and water.
- If possible, avoid driving at peak traffic hours or at night in order to prevent accidents with reckless or hurried drivers.
Despite taking all these precautions and more, you may still end up in an accident with another motorist. Should this happen to you, it is imperative to involve a motorcycle accident lawyer right away in order to ensure your medical expenses and injury-related costs are covered by the person or driver who hurt you.
