On behalf of Law Offices of Mauro Fiore, Jr. posted in Motorcycle Accidents on Friday, December 15, 2017.
California traffic laws are there to protect you from the moment you step on your bike to the instant your kickstand hits the ground. At the Law Offices of Mauro Fiore, Jr., we consider it part of our professional duty as attorneys to help people understand and uphold these laws. We believe that education for all drivers is nearly as important as proper protective gear for bikers: Both have the potential to prevent injury and save lives.If you ride a motorcycle, then you probably know about most of these laws. After all, your license test covered all of the important safety points. Unfortunately, most of your fellow drivers out on the road do not have the same training you do. Our state does not require all drivers to demonstrate a thorough knowledge of required motorcycle safety equipment, for example. Other motorists are, therefore less likely to have the ability to determine your risk of injury by quickly examining your gear. Even though few people apart from motorcycle riders review the California DMV's motorcycle handbook, it contains information we think could be useful to almost everyone to prevent serious injuries. For example, we believe that motorists who better understand how motorcycles drive together are less likely to behave erratically when encountering groups of bikes. It might be worth your time to take a glance at the DMV motorcycle handbook whether or not you ride a motorcycle, as it contains updates on laws that might affect you.
