Bike Week Safety

Representing Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Nearby Areas of Florida

Bike Week has just begun and already four people have been killed as a result of motorcycle accidents in Central Florida. Here are some safety tips to keep all motorists safe this Bike Week:
  1. Remember that a motorcycle has the same status and privilege on the road as any other vehicle, so give the motorcyclist his full lane width and never try to share a lane with a motorcyclist;
  2. Bikers should never try to ride between lanes to overtake slower cars ahead;
  3. Always check blindspots and mirrors carefully for motorcyclists;
  4. Bikers should assume they are invisible to other motorists, position themselves to be seen, and operate their motorcycle as if they are invisible anyway;
  5. Bikers, and all motorists, should signal their intentions with turn signals or hand signals before turning or changing lanes;
  6. Wear helmets and other safety gear.
Enjoy sunny Florida, and stay safet this Bike Week. If you or a loved one is injured or killed in a motorcycle accident, you will need experienced legal help. Call CGWC for a free consultation.
