Florida Riding Safety Tips
Safety Tip of the Week
This week’s safety tip is condensed from the website of Florida attorney Michael T. Gibson, PA. Click here to read the full list of tips.
Inspect your bike before each ride; proper maintenance is a good safety precaution. Wear protective gear, including gloves, boots, jacket, and helmet. Be sure your helmet is DOT-certified.
Drive to survive. Watch for brake lights and turn signals on trucks and cars. If you must pass through a blind spot, do it quickly, and always be aware that you are less visible to drivers. Remember that motorcycles accelerate faster than cars or trucks so you don’t rear-end something when a traffic light changes. Don’t drive aggressively—your bike doesn’t outweigh cars and trucks.
No lane sharing in Florida!
Stay safe out there!
