Motorcyclists can take several precautions to enhance their safety and prevent accidents like the one mentioned in the article. Here are some important measures:

  1. Wear Protective Gear: Always wear a DOT-approved helmet, sturdy protective clothing (jacket, pants, gloves), and sturdy footwear to reduce the risk of injury in case of a crash.

  2. Ride Defensively: Assume that other drivers may not see you. Stay aware of your surroundings, anticipate potential hazards, and maintain a safe following distance from other vehicles.

  3. Obey Speed Limits: Adhering to speed limits is crucial. Excessive speed reduces reaction time and increases the severity of accidents.

  4. Stay Visible: Wear bright or reflective clothing and use your motorcycle’s headlights to increase visibility, especially during low-light conditions.

  5. Signal and Communicate: Use hand signals and turn indicators to signal your intentions to other motorists. Clear communication can help prevent misunderstandings.
