A data from the NHTSA show that 5,579 motorcyclists died in crashes in 2020.

 Motorcycle deaths accounted for 14 percent of all motor vehicle crashes in 2020 and were more than double their numbers in 1997.

If you’re a motorcyclist, it’s essential to practice safe habits. Here are the easy 7 steps to keep yourself safe as a motorcyclist.

#Tip 1
One way to be more safe as you ride is to look carefully behind you when you stop at intersections.

#Tip 2
 Do not operate your bike near parked vehicles. Never ride between parked cars and any heavy traffic.

#Tip 3
Even if you think you're okay after a few drinks, don't take the chance. You could end up in a crash with no one to help you.

#Tip 4
You should be prepared to handle common motorcycle accidents. Therefore, learn how to avoid them by practicing defensive riding and staying focused on the road.

#Tip 5
Perform regular maintenance on your motorcycle, ensuring the tires, any leaks in the oil or gas system, and the brake components are working correctly. 

#Tip 6
You should drive in the leftmost lane if there is traffic. Otherwise, you should keep your distance from cars and other motorcycles.

#Tip 7
Riding in inclement weather may seem unavoidable, but doing so is essential. This can aggravate the problem for both riders and pedestrians.
