AAA Mid-Atlantic Calls on Maryland Motorists to Share the Road

By Alpert Schreyer on May 31, 2013

Maryland Motorcycle SafetyWith Memorial Day behind us and summer just ahead, AAA Mid-Atlantic wants to encourage Maryland motorists to be alert for motorcycles.  Motorcyclists are much more vulnerable to serious injury in crashes than automobile drivers and passengers.  With the warmer weather, more motorcyclists are on Maryland’s highways.  AAA Mid-Atlantic advises motorists and motorcyclists to stay aware of each other and keep everyone on Maryland’s roads safe.

In order to reduce the number of motorcycle accidents, the following are safety tips for motorists:

  • Adjust mirrors to eliminate blind spots.  If cars can disappear in blind spots, imagine how easily a motorcycle can be hidden from view.  Adjust both side mirrors so that you can see as much of both sides of your vehicle as possible.
  • Share the road.  Motorcyclists have the same privileges that other vehicles have on Maryland’s highways.  Always allow motorcycles a full lane.
  • At intersections, look out for motorcycles and use turn signals to clearly show your intent.
  • Look out for motorcycles when you are exiting a driveway.  You may drive into the path of a motorcycle if you are not looking carefully and expecting that a motorcycle, not a car, might be approaching.
  • Be ready for motorcyclists’ evasive actions.  Motorcyclists must avoid debris, obstructions, pot holes, etc.
  • Allow sufficient space between your vehicle and the motorcycle in front of you.

The Maryland motorcycle accident attorneys at the firm of Alpert Schreyer want you to be safe on Maryland’s roads this summer.  We understand that Maryland motorists do not always anticipate the presence of motorcycles.  If you have been injured or if a loved one has lost his or her life in a motorcycle accident that was the fault of someone else’s carelessness,  it is important for you to have the help of an experienced attorney who can help you to hold the other driver responsible and recover the compensation you deserve.  Please call (844) 632-7274 or view or case results to see our history of success.  We offer a free case evaluation for your case.
