Driving Safety Tips: Automobile drivers share the road with motorcycles. As temperatures rise and the roads become ice free there is an increasing number of motorcycles on our roads and streets. Motorcycles are not easily identified in traffic and it is difficult to judge their speed and distance. Being alert to the perceptual problem and consciously look for motorcyclists will help ovoid collisions. When a traffic light turns green always look left, right, straight ahead, and left again before pulling out into an intersection. Do not assume that other cars are stopped when their light has turned red.
Motorcyclists are completely unprotected. When they are involved in a collision on the road, they most likely suffer severe and often life-threatening injuries. If you or someone you love has been injured on a motorcycle, please seek the help you deserve. Call the personal injury attorneys at Ringstad Law Office, P.C. to see how we can help.
