The federal government is asking states to adopt a safety net to help ensure the safety of everyone on the road.
But some are calling for a more comprehensive approach.
Here are the key points to remember when it comes to riding safely:1.
Riding on public roads is a dangerous sport.
If you are in a car or truck, or if you are on the sidewalk, you are at risk.2.
If there are a few riders, you need to make sure everyone has helmets on.3.
It’s a good idea to ride at a moderate pace so everyone has a chance to get out of the way.4.
If riding on a crowded highway, you should have a plan for emergency exits.5.
Motorcycle safety courses are a good place to start learning to ride safely, but you should never ride on the street, even in the middle of nowhere.6.
Even if you ride a bike on the highway, it’s better to take your motorcycle on a two-lane road, and to stay on the right side of the road if possible.7.
Don’t forget your seatbelt.
If it’s too tight, your body can be pushed into the seatbelt buckle.8.
Riding without a motorcycle helmet is the safest way to ride, and a lot of people don’t wear them.
It protects your head and neck.9.
You need a motorcycle seat belt for all but the most serious riding.10.
Riding a motorcycle is more dangerous than driving a car, truck, SUV, or bus.
