Motorbike Safety on the Roads

Some of us love them and some of us hate them, whatever our opinion, motorbikes are here to stay on our roads. They are a preferred means of transport for some road users and if other road users look out for bikes on the roads then together we should be able to cut their accident rate. Unfortunately, as it stands motorbikes and their riders are the most likely to become involved in a motorcycle traffic accident.

When out on the roads all road users have a duty of care to show to one another. This means that they should never do anything that puts the health and safety of other people using the road at risk. All motorists on the roads should always look out for road users such as cyclists, bikers and pedestrians. These road users are most vulnerable if they do become involved in a road traffic accident.

Bikers are often not seen by other motorists or motorists say that they simply appeared out of no-where. Before turning off it is important that as a motorist you check all your mirrors to make sure that there are no bikers approaching behind you. As a biker there a number of things you should do to ensure your safety on the roads.

You should:

  • Make sure that you are wearing the essential motorcycle gear. This will help protect your upper and lower body if you do become involved in a road traffic accident.
  • Buy and wear a safety helmet, as a motorcyclist it is essential that you wear a helmet as this is most likely to protect you in the unfortunate event that you do become involved in an accident. Some helmets can be a bit pricey but investing in a high quality on could be one of the best choices you make this year.
  • Make sure your vehicle is well lit at all times, this will allow other motorist to spot you as early as possible.
  • Abide by the speed limits; a lot of people see motorbikes as speed demons. Abiding by the speed limit will cut the chances of you becoming involved in a road traffic accident.

 

If both motorists and motorcyclists pay the due care and attention that is asked of them and everyone works together to ensure safety is perceived on the roads then the likeliness of any kind of accident occurring will decrease.  

If you have been involved in a road traffic accident whilst out on the roads that weren’t your fault then you may be able to make an injury compensation claim.
