YOUR MOTORCYCLE MORE VISIBLE!
to GHSA (Governors Highway Safety Association) 40.4% of motorcycles accidents
are caused due to the other driver not noticing the motorcycle. 32 % of bikers
in Florida do not think that they should wear safety helmets or bright gear.
Motorcyclists make sure you can be seen in a crowd. Riders who are visible or
“conspicuous” are less likely to have their right-of-way violated. Using
reflective stickers on your helmet or bike, can make other drivers spot you.
Consider wearing bright colored clothing or vests. Many vests are available
with stripes and patches that are reflective at night to increase your
visibility. Add reflective tape to your bike, custom reflectors are available
for most motorcycles. Reflective tape on saddlebags or the side of your
motorcycle glow bright when hit by headlights. The distance at which a driver
will first see different colored clothing at night differs:
sure to ride bright and be seen!
