Launching motorcycle accident claims in Canterbury using the no win no fee services of Accident Advice Helpline is one of the best ways of making sure that personal injury claims get recognised and acknowledged. More importantly though, that claims result in significant amounts of financial compensation being paid to claimants.
Many road traffic accidents involve motorbikes. According to statistics on the think.direct.gov.uk website, motorcyclists are 38 times more likely to be killed in a road traffic accident than drivers and passengers in cars. The fact of the matter is that although motorcyclists only total approximately 1% of road users, they make up 19% of all RTA fatalities.
Safety tips for motorcyclists
Many motorcyclists tend to drive quite aggressively; but riding more defensively can make you less vulnerable. Here are some useful tips:
- Take time to anticipate the actions of other road users
- Always remain alert and observant
- Make sure that you have enough time and space to be able to slow down and stop if something unexpected happens
- Position yourself on the road in order to maximise best visibility of any potential hazards
- Always remember to glance back over your shoulder before carrying out any manoeuvres. This is a potential life-saving tip.
The final tip to improve your safety when riding on a motorbike is to drive with the headlamp on at all times. This increases your visibility as far as other road users are concerned.
