Summer brings warm weather and with it people enjoying their scooters and motorcycles. The attorneys at Charles E. Boyk Law Offices LLC have provided some safety tips to help keep you safe while riding your two-wheeled machines.
- Riding safe means being safe. ALWAYS wear quality protective head gear. Wearing a $5 helmet means a $5 head.
- Scooters may be practically invisible to busy drivers. Always ride with a defensive mind set, constantly scan the road, be aware of blind spots, wear bright reflective clothing, and check your mirrors roughly every 5-7 seconds.
- Automobiles are not as vulnerable as a scooter may be to road conditions like pot holes, for instance, so being mindful of varying road surface conditions is crucial to scooter riding safety.
Follow these safety tips and happy riding everyone!
