Many avid bike riders may be aware of the risks they face and feel it vital to take every possible measure to stay safe while riding.

It is no secret that individuals who travel via bicycle do not have the same level of protective barriers afforded to those who ride in a motor vehicle.

Drunk driving continues to be one of the leading causes of major collisions and the fallout of such incidents can have a devastating impact on the lives of everyone involved.

Riding as a passenger with a driver who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs is never advisable.

During times of inclement weather, remaining in control of a motor vehicle can be substantially more challenging. Those who fail to slow down during winter weather conditions may unfortunately place the safety of others in harm's way in the process. A recent accident that took place during similar conditions has led to the apparent wrongful death of two women in West Virginia.
A head-on collision is dangerous under any circumstances. However, when a motorcycle is involved, a head-on crash runs the unfortunate chance of turning deadly.

Motorcycles are significantly smaller than other vehicles and are thus more difficult to spot out on the road, especially at night.
