Leigh Insurance Agency of St Augustine Blog
With Daytona Bike Week approaching this weekend, many motorcyclists will be hitting the road to partake in the exciting activities. But with all those eager participants comes increased risk for accidents.
Leigh Insurance Agency of St. Augustine always puts your safety first, and if you’re planning to attend Bike Week or regularly use a motorcycle, here’s a list of tips to keep you in tip top shape.
1. Always wear a helmet. Although it’s not always required in the State Florida, a helmet is a major source of protection. Protective clothing can also provide cushion in the event of an accident.
2. Be sure to stay out of the blind spot of trucks - known as the “No Zone.” These zones include the sides of the truck as well as the front and back. Take caution when you pass larger vehicles in general.
3. Be aware of signals, brake lights and signs. Make sure to pay attention to other vehicles, intersections, etc. to avoid crashes.
4. Carry motorcycle insurance. In the event of an accident, you want to be sure any injuries or property damage is covered. And, if your motorcycle is your favorite toy, wouldn't you want it protected, as well? Insurance gives you peace of mind when you’re on the road.
