Ohio motorcycle accident awareness raised

All over the country, there are people who enjoy hitting the open road on a motorcycle. While this can be a great joy, it can also be dangerous at times. May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. During this time, it is important for all drivers, both of motorcycles and other vehicles, to take into consideration what they can do to improve safety.

Every year, Ohio motorcycle accidents happen for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, it is the fault of the motorcyclist, but in many cases, it is the direct result of a motor vehicle not paying attention to others on the road.

From a motorcyclist's perspective, it is important to wear an approved safety helmet as well as safety gear. Along with this, staying visible at all times can help cut down on the chance of an accident. For drivers of other vehicles, such as cars and trucks, it is a must to pay attention to all vehicles on the road. Along with this, it is essential to share the road, giving everybody enough space to remain safe.

Even though May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, it goes without saying that all drivers should navigate the roadways as safely as possible at all times, regardless of the month. Neglecting to do so can lead to serious injury or even death. When a motorcycle is involved in an accident with a larger vehicle, including trucks and buses, it is often the driver of the bike that ends up injured, thanks to the size discrepancy and lack of protection.
