Rider Eduction Program

March 17th, 2010

Over 90% of motorcycle riders involved in crashes are self-taught or learned from family and friends. A motorcycle rider is physically vulnerable. In a crash, a rider and passenger are more likely to be injured then occupants in a vehicle. Wering reasonable protective gear, however, can reduce injuries.

A motorcycle rider’s judgment is critical. In single vehicle crashes, rider error is the most common cause. Crashes with other vehicles also occure because either on or both operators make errors in judgment. Many collisions and injuries could have been avoided if the motorcycle rider had known when and how to swerve or brake.
