You’ve been looking forward to the weekend. With a little time off from work, you can finally go for a ride on your motorcycle. As you prepare for your ride, it is important to think about some safety precautions that you can take to protect yourself if an accident does occur.

Three Things You Can Do to Stay Safe on Your Motorcycle This Weekend

As you prepare for your weekend motorcycle ride, it is important to:

1.      Consider the likely traffic patterns on your route. Will other drivers see you if you are hurt in an accident? Are you planning on riding in an area where there could be many drunk drivers over the weekend?

2.      Let someone else know where you are going and what time you expect to be back. That way someone may be able to find you if you are injured and don’t come home on time.

3.      Have a cell phone with you. Make sure that you have emergency contacts programmed in so that someone else can contact your loved ones if you are too hurt to do it yourself. You will also be able to call 911 and your loved ones if you are hurt but able to access your phone.

If you are injured then it is also important to get emergency medical help and also to follow up with your regular doctor as soon as possible. That may include getting a second opinion on Monday.
