GHSA Recommends Ways to Improve Motorcycle Safety Statewide

By Alpert Schreyer on June 18, 2012

Waldorf Motorcycle SafetyThe rate of motorcycle accident deaths nationwide has held steady the past few years, unlike the rate of motor vehicle accident deaths, which has gone down. The difference has some safety experts worried. It has also prompted the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) to offer several tips state’s can use to improve motorcycle safety.

Maryland is one of several states that has, luckily, seen an overall decrease in motorcycle accident deaths. Researchers say that Maryland’s motorcycle helmet requirements help prevent fatal accidents, along with several other state policies. Steps that Maryland motorcyclists can take to save more lives include:

  • Always wear a motorcycle helmet. Maryland law requires helmets on public roads, but for the best protection, bikers should wear a properly-fitting helmet every time they ride, no matter where they are.
  • Never ride while drunk. Alcohol is a major factor in all kinds of deadly road crashes. Never drink if you’re going to ride or plan for a sober way to get home if necessary.
  • Avoid speeding. Speed often plays a role in fatal motorcycle accidents. You can’t control whether others on the road speed, but you can control whether you do.
  • Take motorcycle safety training courses. These courses teach you how to predict and avoid many common types of dangerous crashes and let you practice safety maneuvers in a protected environment. The skills you learn in these courses might save your life, and you’ll get to meet other people who love their bikes, too.

Motorcycle accidents can cause serious injuries. Fortunately, you don’t have to deal with the aftermath of a crash alone.
