Essential Safety Tips
Like the risks facing those who choose to ride motorcycles, moped riders are far more vulnerable than those riding in passenger vehicles. Special consideration must be given by riders to the road and traffic around them. By keeping the following in mind, you will be much safer if you are a moped or scooter rider:
- Do not ride in blind spots
- Avoid potholes
- Always wear your helmet
- Do not ride on rough terrain
Mopeds are smaller and slower than motorcycles, and their tires and suspension are not designed for hard bumps. Automobile drivers are typically not as careful around mopeds as they should be, which can lead to devastating accidents and injuries.
Being injured in a moped accident can cause a great deal of damage to the small vehicle, to say nothing of the devastation that can come to the relatively unprotected rider. If you have been injured in a moped accident, you need to take legal action. Call 800-242-2874 to find out how the Kenosha car accident attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. can help you.
