Motorcycles are deceptively dangerous vehicles, and require specialized knowledge that the average driver does not have. They require specific training and equipment such that a special license is required to ride one.

Motorcycle Safety Tips
Motorcycles, by their very nature, are more dangerous than cars. They have only two wheels, which make them particularly dangerous in less-than-perfect weather conditions, such as rain, heavy wind, or ice. Car drivers often have difficulty gauging how fast motorcycles are going because of their size, and accidents involving motorcycles are far more likely to be fatal. As of 2006, motorcyclists are 2.5 times more likely to be in a fatal accident than car drivers.
Some basic tips to consider for motorcycle safety:
- Before buying a bike, consider your skill level and what you’ll be using it for. Talk to the salesperson about what you need from your bike.
- Invest in quality protective wear. A good helmet is vital, and ones that have a full mask enclosure are the safest. Specialty riding clothes or leather clothing can turn what would have been a fatal accident into one you can walk away from.
- Regularly maintain your bike and make sure that it is in good working condition. A motorcycle in poor condition is more likely to cause an accident.
Even the best precautions can’t always prevent an accident. If you or someone you love has been involved in a motorcycle accident, contact the Milwaukee motorcycle accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, by calling 800-242-2874.
