One of the most serious injuries that can impact motorcyclists not wearing helmets is a traumatic brain injury.

Since motorcycles are smaller than automobiles and less prevalent on our roadways, some drivers struggle to see motorcyclists on the road. In fact, some motorcycle-vehicle accidents happen due to negligence on the part of the vehicle driver – whether the driver was texting, listening to the radio or speeding. To improve your visibility as a motorcyclist, wear bright- colored clothing during the day and reflective clothing at night. Additionally, shoes or boots should cover ankles and motorcycle operators wearing gloves will protect their hands while stabilizing their grip on handlebars.
