Due to their small size, motorcycles are at a higher risk for accidents on California roadways. At the law offices of Mauro Fiore, Jr., we encourage safe driving habits to avoid incidents. Learning a few tips can help you to stay out of risky situations and better monitor what is happening around you when you are riding.

The hallmark of safe driving, according to the Department of Motor Vehicles is a process called SEE, which stands for search, evaluate and execute. Search means to look around you as you are going down the road for possible bad situations and to plan escape routes. Evaluate means to anticipate potential risks and determine how they will affect you. Execute means to follow through on any escape routes you have planned or any other decisions you made in the first two stages.

In addition to practicing SEE, you should be aware of common risks. Watch out for doors opening or pedestrians walking into the roadway when you are driving by parked vehicles. Make sure that you pay attention at intersections. Left-hand turns are especially risky. Make sure that other vehicles see you and respond to you before proceeding through an intersection or making a turn. Watch out for dangerous surfaces, like loose gravel or uneven pavement.

It also helps to develop some defensive driving skills. Learn how to brake and swerve properly. Practice on curves to avoid crashes. Many of the motorcycle accidents involving just the bike are caused by losing control on a curve or during a turn. More information about motor vehicle crashes is available on our web page.
