Motorcycle season is here in Indiana, and the Indianapolis motorcycle accident lawyers at Stewart & Stewart Attorneys would like to remind you to be extra vigilant on the road this time of year. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an estimated 62 percent of motorcycle fatalities occur between the months of May and September.

There are numerous organizations that are working to raise awareness about motorcycle safety during the coming weeks. An article from WTHITV 10 News says that state officials have announced that May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. Several awareness rides and motorcycle events will coincide with the campaign, but if you’re looking to get involved with spreading the word about motorcycle safety, your actions behind the wheel may be your best bet.

Here are several ways drivers and bikers can help prevent accidents and injuries on the road:

  • Be Vigilant– Look twice in both directions and blind spots before maneuvering in traffic.
  • Use Safety Equipment– Helmets can reduce a motorcyclist’s chances of death by 37 percent, and vehicle seatbelts have been found to significantly reduce injuries and fatalities for drivers.
  • Don’t Drink and Drive– Alcohol is one of the leading contributing factors in crashes today. So please, arrange for a safe ride home if you’ve been drinking.

The Indiana personal injury lawyers at Stewart & Stewart Attorneys hope these tips help to keep you and your loved ones safe on the road!
