How to Avoid Motorcycle Accidents

I've noticed that motorcycles in Manila has increased tremendously this year. And motorcycle riders drive so recklessly without any thought of how they're endangering their lives, not to mention those of other people.

Here are some observations, which motorcycle riders should take note of, to keep themselves and other people safe on the street.

Don't Use The Sidewalk - Only stup*d drivers do this. And there are a lot of them in Manila. Who cares if you're already late for work or an appointment? Leave early next time so you don't endanger those walking on the sidewalk. They have every right to use the sidewalk and you riding your motorcycle don't!

Helmet - If you're using one that the , then you're bound to crack that skull of yours if you fell of that bike, hopefully not, accidentally.

Overtaking Is Bad - I feel horrified everytime I see a motorcycle zooming, zygzagging and overtaking other vehicles on the street. I only see stunt people do that in the movies. In real life, no director will shout "Cut!", so drive safely on the road.

It's always to drive carefully and not be too aggressive when it comes to motorcycles.

wearing the proper helmet observing traffic rules and keen concentration when on the road is important for motorbike riders in order to get rid of accidents, however there is always the risk of unwanted accidents, the reason why i really never allow my husband nor my kids to buy a motorbike

This! So many accidents in the news and it makes me paranoid because I am surrounded by men who rode the motorcycle to work. Some people are too careless with their driving.

Hay honestly...my idea is to get rid of the motorcycle. Just happy that hubby no longer rides one. I was always worried back then when we were still single and riding motorcycles.

i grew up riding a motorcycle with my dad. Fortunately, no accidents happened to us even if I'm not protected. My dad really is a cautious driver.

Accidents do happen any time at any place but being a cautious person sometimes is not exempted especially when some people who are born careless hit the roads.
