With our beautiful South Florida weather, motorcycle enthusiasts love to take to the roads. If you are one of them, make sure you are safe. According to reports from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), one out of every ten fatal motor vehicle accidents in the United States involves a collision with a motorcycle, resulting in approximately 6,000 people killed in motorcycle accidents every year.
One of the most logical steps to reduce the risk of serious injuries while riding a motorcycle is to always wear appropriate safety gear. While a helmet is the most important piece of equipment you can wear to reduce the risks of death and traumatic brain injuries, there are other additional pieces of gear that will help you be safer when riding.
A good pair of gloves will allow you to grip the handlebar more efficiently, and also protect your fingers and hands in the event of an accident. Wearing a reinforced motorcycle jacket will not just make you look better while riding, but also protect your upper body from severe injuries. A sturdy neck collar will lend additional stability to your neck area, and also help protect your collarbones. And finally, a good set of boots can help protect both your feet and your ankles in the event of an accident.
