Posted at 6:23 PM, Sep 09, 2020

With the weather being so nice and the leaves about to change we are going to be on the road a lot more to see the beauty of the changing leaves. The law of offices of William Mattar has a message about sharing the road with motorcycles.

Megan Lederhouse, outreach coordinator from the law offices of William Mattar says they want to remind you about the motorcycles on the road and the importance of staying alert for bikers and sharing the road with them. She says, unfortunately, in their practice, their team has seen many devasting motorcycle accidents and that’s why this awareness is so important to everyone at the law firm. Motorcycle riders tend to sustain very serious injuries, when involved in accidents because they lack the protection of a steel frame and air bags that you find in cars and trucks. At William Mattar Law offices they want to remind all drivers of the importance of staying alert and focused so we can reduce motorcycle accidents and fatalities. There is already a rise in catastrophic accidents once the better weather starts so it is important to stay focused and not let yourself get distracted while driving especially when sharing the road with motorcycles.

The law offices of William Mattar have prepared some helpful tips for sharing the road with motorcycles that they are hoping will keep everyone safe.

Here are some important things to keep in mind.

Be alert and not distracted

Be aware of blind spots especially when turning or changing lanes

If you see one motorcycle, assume there are more because bikers do tend to travel in groups

Give motorcycles extra space. Driving a car and driving a motorcycle involve different skills. Motorcycle riders may need extra space to make maneuvers for different road or traffic conditions.

You can see the full list on their website.

Megan Lederhouse says as always, their team is there to help 24/7. If you have questions, or for more information or tips on driving, click here to go to their website.
