Florida Riding Safety Tips
Safety Tip of the Week
This week’s safety tip is comprised of information from Florida attorney Michael T. Gibson, PA.
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!
