3 Things You Can Do to Be Safe When Riding a Motorcycle After Dark
With the shortest day of the year fast approaching, we find ourselves on the roads after dark more and more. If you are a motorcycle rider, how can you protect yourself during the more dangerous after dark hours? Here are three things that could save your life.
- Take the Best Route – During the day, feel free to take the scenic route. At night, the most important thing is visibility. You don’t get a lot of light from the single headlight on a motorcycle, so well-lit roads are the best for seeing obstacles. Well-lit areas also give you the best chance of other drivers seeing you.
- Wear Reflective Clothing – If you are wearing all black on a black bike, other drivers are likely not to see you even on a decently lit road. Especially at night, you want to have something reflective on you and on your bike. When another driver’s lights are on you, they should be able to see you right away.
- Ride Slow – Speeding is the most common cause of accidents for drivers of just about any type of vehicle. You should always obey the speed limit, but be sure to drive the right speed for the conditions (darkness, bad weather, etc.) even if that means going a little slower than you prefer.
