What Precautions Should I Take as a Motorcyclist?

Law Office of Osborne Law Firm, P.C
Motorcycle accident

As a motorcyclist, there are precautions you should take while driving. It is inherently a dangerous way to travel, as you are less protected than those in cars. Lane splitting can make the journey even more dangerous.

The first step is always to wear a helmet. This will protect your head in the event of an accident. You should also make sure that your bike is in good condition and that you have taken the time to learn how to ride it properly.

It is also important to be aware of your surroundings at all times. You need to keep an eye out for other drivers who may not see you or may not give you enough space. You should also be aware of changes in the road surface, which can cause you to lose control of your bike.

Lane splitting, or riding between lanes of stopped or slow-moving traffic, is legal in California. However, it is not currently legal in North Carolina. As a motorcyclist, you should be aware of the risks involved in lane splitting and take precautions to avoid accidents.

One of the biggest dangers of lane splitting is that you can easily become trapped between two cars if they suddenly move. You may also be hit by a car that doesn’t see you while you’re splitting lanes. In addition, lane splitting can cause motorcycles to lose traction, which can lead to accidents.

What Should I Do If I’m Hit By a Motorcyclist Lane Splitting?

If you are hit by a motorcyclist who is lane splitting, you should first make sure that you and the other driver are safe. You should then call the police and report the accident. You may also want to seek legal assistance to recover any damages that you may have suffered. You may also want to speak with a personal injury lawyer to learn about your rights and options if you were injured.
