The Motorcycle Accident Lawyers at Tenn And Tenn, P.A. in Manchester, New Hampshire take this opportunity to remind everyone that May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. The month of May has been recognized nationally as Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, in conjunction with the start of the motorcycle riding season. To encourage motorists and motorcyclists alike to “share the road.” Motorist awareness is a fundamental goal of The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Motorcycles have the same rights and privileges as any motor vehicle on the roadway. The NHTSA reminds all motorists to safely “share the road” with motorcycles and to be extra alert to help keep motorcyclists safe.
Preventing Motorcycle Accidents This Month
As motorcycle accident lawyers, we see firsthand the tragic results of motorcycle accidents and collisions and the injuries sustained to motorcyclists. Each year, motorcycle accidents cause severe injury and claim the lives of many New Hampshire and Massachusetts residents. Unfortunately, many of these motorcycle collisions are caused by inattentive drivers who fail to see motorcyclists.
Be On The Lookout
The President of the American Motorcycle Association recently stated that motorists are conditioned to be on the lookout for other cars, trucks, buses, and pedestrians. Unfortunately, many motorists forget to look out for motorcyclists with whom they share the road. Drivers can help motorcyclists remain safe on the roads by allowing them extra space and not following too closely. The AMA President also said that motorcyclists need to do their part to ride safely by wearing protective equipment including gloves, proper footwear, and a U.S. Department of Transportation-approved motorcycle helmet.
