safety

May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month.  

 

As we all know all the safety gear we wear and all the safety tech on our motorcycles are just not enough at times.  Awareness of motorcycles by drivers of cars and trucks is as important as everything we do. 

 

So to help improve the awareness of others (and therefore ourselves) we need to start teaching children to watch for motorcycles.  That is why the idea of teaching kids to count motorcycles instead of “punch bugs” is so important.  If they are watching for motorcycles as kids they will have an easier time seeing them when they start to drive.  Thus our safety as motorcyclist is improved.  The payoff is in the future but let’s invest now. 

 

Make a game that has a small reward when they spot “X” number of motorcycles. Ask your non-riding friends to do this with their children.  Mention it at events and gatherings, just get the word out.  You know when a 6 year old yells “motorcycle” that their parent is going to see it to!!

  1. I love this idea. I wish the car that hit me in March had been playing this game.

    That’s a cool idea. There is also a motorcycle safety tech called, Cosmo Connected, that would help decrease accidents too. It’s a smart brake light that gives visibility to motorcyclists, the device attaches to the back of a helmet and emits red LED lights. The placement is designed to catch the eye of surrounding drives at their eye level to give them indications when a motorcyclist is there or when they slow down.
