Bike Week is Here – Ride Safely to Avoid Personal Injury

Bike Week in New England

This week bikers from all across New England will migrate to Laconia New Hampshire for one of the biggest annual bike rallies in the country. Laconia closes its streets to any non-motorcycle traffic and becomes a festival for riding enthusiasts, locals, and tourists. Whether you’re riding or driving the roads in New England this upcoming week, be prepared for some extra motorcycle traffic and do your part to help to ensure rider safety.

“Look Twice” Riders and drivers should always check twice before changing lanes. Use your signals and be patient with other drivers and riders. According to the NHTSA, 80% of motorcycle accidents result in injury or death. Motorcyclists should also remember to be aware and yield to traffic and stay visible to other drivers on the road.

Many motorcycle accidents and injuries are often resulting from single vehicle accidents. Ride safe! Watch your speed, stay in control and wear protective gear, long pants, and proper shoes.
