    How to avoid an accident as a motorcyclist


    Riding a motorcycle is a fun and uplifting experience; in fact, it’s one of the most exciting forms of transport! But you should be aware that on a motorbike you’re extremely vulnerable to other traffic; you don’t have the protection of a car or van if you’re involved in an accident. Motorbike accidents happen frequently, and they’re usually caused by other drivers not paying attention to motorcyclists or by those riding motorcycles taking risks.

    Avoiding motorbike accidents

    The good news is that there are steps you can take to avoid accidents when riding your motorcycle – here are a few tips:

    • Don’t ride when it’s snowing or if road conditions are poor – leave the bike at home and consider other forms of transport
    • Take a motorcycle training course or refresher course to ensure you stay safe
    • Reduce your speed when it’s raining – rain can really impact your visibility and can also make it harder for other drivers to see you
    • Wear high-visibility clothing on your motorcycle and ensure you use your lights where necessary, so that you’re always visible to other road users
    • Slow down on corners – this is where many accidents happen
    • Don’t ride in another driver’s blind spot – if they try to manoeuvre or change lanes they could hit you
    • Keep your distance from the vehicle in front, especially in wet weather
    • Be cautious – always presume that other drivers can’t see you as this will help you to ride more safely
