Tips for Maryland Motorcycle Safety

By Alpert Schreyer on June 11, 2012

Waldorf Motorcycle Crash InjuryA recent report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) noted that, unlike other types of vehicle crashes, the number of motorcycle accidents nationwide has not decreased in recent years. Maryland sees a large number of motorcycle accidents each year, many of which end in serious injury to the motorcyclist or even death.

In 2008 alone, Maryland saw more than 1,800 motorcycle accidents. These accidents caused 1,500 injuries and 83 deaths, almost all of which were suffered by motorcyclists or their passengers.

Maryland motorcycle laws require riders to take several steps that can help protect their safety and reduce the risk of a disabling or deadly injury in a crash. First, it’s important to get a motorcycle license or endorsement in Maryland. A motorcycle safety course can help you prepare for the licensing test and teach you how to predict and avoid many of the types of situations in Maryland that lead to accidents.

MD Motorcycle Crash SafetyMaryland also requires everyone riding or driving a motorcycle to wear a helmet that meets federal safety standards. Eye protection or a windscreen on the bike is also required. Both pieces of equipment can significantly reduce the damage in an accident or even prevent a crash. Finally, Maryland does not require turn signals on motorcycles, but these can also protect you from injury by giving other drivers an idea of where and when you plan to turn.
