Georgia officials to motorists: Warmer weather means more motorcycles

Thanks to Georgia's temperate climate, many people can and do make a motorcycle their primary mode of transportation on a year-round basis. There are a considerable number of motorcyclists, however, who choose to leave their bikes parked in the garage until spring rolls around, unwilling to deal with cooler temperatures, cold rain and even frost.

How much do you know about Georgia's helmet law?

When it comes to motorcycle helmet laws, it may surprise people to learn that there is a veritable patchwork of regulations across the 50 states.

How motorcyclists can stay safe on evening rides

Pursue financial relief after your motorcycle accident

Despite the warnings, signs and education, many passenger vehicle drivers still do not pay attention to motorcyclists. Even though motorcyclists adhere to the same laws and have the same rights as other drivers, they are still one of the most overlooked travelers on the road. Unfortunately, even one moment of inattention can lead to a catastrophic accident and the loss of life. And, this threat is as great for motorcyclists as it is for pedestrians. Fortunately, there is a way for these victims of inattention and negligence to receive the financial relief they deserve after an accident.

Georgia motorcycle accident takes life of 32-year-old man

A motorcycle accident is often tragic, as a motorcyclist has little protection from his or her environment.

As the man's loved ones deal with the emotional turmoil stemming from their loss, they may also find themselves facing financial turmoil.

Motorcyclist dies in collision after Christmas parade

Motorcyclists can never be too careful. The same can be said for everyone else on the road, particularly concerning how we navigate and share the roadways with motorcyclists. Drivers are often encouraged and reminded to look twice for motorcycles. A failure to look carefully may have contributed to the cause of why a woman's life was cut tragically short on a Sunday afternoon in December.

Motorcycle accident prevention begins before you ride

The fact that motorcycle operators and their passengers do not have a steel frame surrounding them to provide protection is one of the reasons catastrophic injuries are common in a motorcycle collision with a car or other motor vehicle. This is why it is important for motorcycle riders to take precautions before going out on the road to minimize the chances of becoming a motorcycle accident victim.
