What can you do to prevent motorcycle accidents?

Motorcycle accidents, like the majority of car accidents, are preventable with awareness, vigilance, and proper precautions. Whether you ride a motorcycle in Washington or you simply want to do your part to protect two-wheeled motorists on the road, there are a few simple things you can change about the way you drive and operate to protect yourself and others on the road. StateFarm shares with you just a few of them.

Common deadly threats for motorcyclists

Taking your motorcycle out for a spin can be fun and convenient, but it comes with some dangers. There are a lot of unique threats to the health and safety of motorcyclists. Motorcycles make up only 4 percent of all vehicles in Washington state but account for 14 percent of traffic fatalities

Keeping passengers safe on your motorcycle

When you take people out on your motorcycle to explore the beautiful scenery of Washington, you have the responsibility to protect them by driving safely, observing the rules of the road and taking precautions to make sure that you are not distracted while you are driving. At Dean Standish Perkins & Associates, we have helped many people who have been the victims of an unfortunate motorcycle accident. 

New technology is helping motorcyclists enjoy a safer ride

Motorcycle sales in the U.S. have increased dramatically: as much as 90 percent since 1991. However, more motorcycles on the road mean more concerns for rider safety. Car and truck drivers are often the negligent parties in vehicle-motorcycle collisions. Since motorcyclists are more vulnerable than drivers in cars or trucks, they usually suffer more serious results such as broken bones or head and chest injuries if involved in a crash.

Adding auxiliary lights to your motorcycle enhances safety

Some riders put auxiliary driving lights on their motorcycles simply because they look "cool." However, most riders want them for added safety. The age and electrical capacity of your bike dictate the type of lights you should purchase.
