4/30/2011Motorcycle riding can be a great way to enjoy yourself while getting from Point A to Point B, as long as you stay safe while traveling. As an Atlanta motorcycle accident attorney, I know that in a crash a motorcyclist is the one that is likely to get hurt, regardless of who was legally at fault for the accident.

Therefore, I encourage you to do what you can to stay safe. For example, you should:
- Obey the Rules of the Road. A motorcycle is a motor vehicle and, as such, you are required to follow the same rules as cars and trucks unless specifically exempt. For example, you should come to a complete stop at red lights and stop signs, just as you would if you were driving a car.
- Know How to Use Your Bike. Driving on a straight, dry road may not be so difficult. However, it can be harder to operate a bike safely on a curvy, steep or wet road. It is important to practice in these conditions and know what to do before you drive on public roads.
- Understand Group Riding Rules. If you will be driving with a group of motorcyclists, make sure that you know what to expect so that you don't make a mistake that hurts you or another rider.
If you have been hurt in a Georgia bike crash, then you may be entitled to damages. Please contact an Atlanta motorcycle accident lawyer at 770.518.1133 today for more information.
