NORCROSS, GA, February 27, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- The accidents lawyers in Atlanta
, McAleer Law, want to remind motorcycle riders to be extra careful this winter. Although Atlanta is rarely subjected to harsh weather during this time of year, storms have happened in the past. While safe driving techniques are something that all drivers should practice, motorcyclists need to take extra precautions when on the road. The main reason being that two wheels are harder to control than four when snow and ice are involved; cars and trucks have the advantage of weight distribution. If a motorcycle starts to slide, there is a very slim chance that the rider will be able to correct the issue, even if they are skilled.
Atlanta accident injury lawyer notes that other drivers are often to blame
With gas prices on the rise, this mode of transportation has become increasingly popular. Motorcycles are certainly more fuel-efficient, but these cost-savings can be quickly be outweighed by medical bills resulting from winter-weather accidents. This is what the accident lawyers in Atlanta
want riders to be aware of. According to Charles McAleer, Founder of McAleer Law, "It is important to remember that most motorcycle accidents are not caused by reckless driving on the part of the cyclist. Rather, fellow motorist failure to notice them on the road or who fail to yield to riders is what often causes these types of accidents. No matter how much protective gear a motorcyclist is equipped with, the risk of serious injury will always be higher than drivers in passenger vehicles." The Atlanta car accident attorney
offers extensive services to riders injured in motorcycle accidents. If you have found yourself subject to an injury that you believe is the fault of another driver, be sure to contact the experts at McAleer Law today. Here are some helpful tips for driving your motorcycle safely this winter.
How to Prevent an Atlanta Car Accident This Winter
- Wear the proper gear; failure to dress appropriately can lead to rider fatigue. When you become tiresome on the road, your reaction time slows and the risk of getting in an accident is increased. Stay warm and stay safe.
- Drive only when necessary; if you have to take the motorcycle, be sure to slow down and allow plenty of room between yourself and other motorists.
- Wear reflective clothing to help other drivers and pedestrians identify you on the road.
- Perform a vehicle inspection before every trip; check your lights, signals and tires before venturing out.
- Remember that windy conditions affect motorcycles more; plan your trips accordingly.
