Spring, summer and fall mean more motorcyclists on the roadways enjoying the warmer days. While most roadway fatalities are decreasing, motorcycle fatalities are increasing.  As motorcycles become more popular, it is especially important to keep in mind ways to protect yourself as a motorcycle operator.

AAA offers a few safety tips for motorcycle riders:

  • Make eye contact Never assume others see you. Always try to make eye contact with drivers who may be about to pull into your path.
  • Read “vehicle language” Even when drivers, cyclists and pedestrians do see you approaching, they often misjudge your distance and speed. Don’t rely on them.
  • Watch out for left-turning vehicles at intersections Getting hit by an oncoming vehicle that’s turning left is the most common type of motorcycle crash.
  • Look out for hazardous road conditions Wet roads, fluid spills, sand, gravel, highway sealant, railroad tracks, potholes and other road-surface hazards reduce your traction and your ability to control your motorcycle.
  • Take it easy on the curves Many crashes happen on curves. You might overshoot the road or cross the center line and get hit by oncoming traffic.
  • Wear a helmet.  It is your greatest defensive against becoming critically injured or killed.
