Reasons to Wear a Helmet
There are people who think that wearing a helmet is “nerdy” or “uncomfortable”. However, if you want to protect your head caused by injuries due to falling, then wearing a motorcycle helmet is essential.
- Protect your brain – Head injuries are one of the main causes of death. Traumatic brain injuries can happen when skateboarders do not wear a helmet.
- They can improve your ability to see – Whether it is raining or snowing, a helmet can help improve your ability to see the road. Not to mention, potential hazards. Also, a tinted visor helps keep the sun out of your eyes.
- Follow the law – Not all states have the same laws regarding motorcycle helmets. For example, in Arizona you must wear a helmet if you are 17 or younger. However, in a state like Alabama, all riders are required to wear one. It is best to know in advance, so look at your local laws regarding helmets.
- Set good examples for children – If you are a parent, your child’s safety should always come first. By setting rules in place early on, it could possibly save their lives later.
- They are stylish – Helmets come in all shapes and sizes. Do not be afraid to “let your freak flag fly” when it comes to riding. Be proud of who you are and show it off with the right helmet!
Several factors can play a role in accidents, including but not limited to impairment, reckless driving, distracted driving, road conditions and speeding. Here we have supplied three tips to help keep you from having an accident.
5 Easy Tips for Accident Prevention
Recent research shows that drivers often do not come to a full stop at stop signs.
This irresponsible and lazy type of driving behavior could lead to dangerous consequences.
Furthermore, intersections are where many crashes occur.
By following three simple tips, drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists can all stay a little safer.
- Come to a complete stop at the painted stop line or before the crosswalk. Moreover, if there are no sidewalk markings, stop just before the stop sign.
- Look for any possible risks before entering the intersection by looking left, right, straight ahead and then left again.
- If another vehicle is stopped ahead of you at the stop sign:
- Stop where you can still see the tires of the vehicle ahead of you.
- When the vehicle ahead of you begins to move, count two seconds before you continue to the stop sign.
