Motorcycle safety awareness month in May

May is motorcycle safety awareness month, and motorcyclists are being urged to practice defensive driving and wear protective equipment while on the roads.

According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, 4,595 fatal motorcycle crashes occurred in the U.S in 2009. In 2010, the use of helmets dropped to only 54 percent, despite helmets being 37 percent likely to save a motorcyclist’s life in the event of a crash.

The NHTSA also found that 1, 483 motorcyclists’ lives were saved through the use of a helmet.

Motorcycle safety should be practiced all throughout the year to prevent fatal injuries. If you or someone you love has been injured in a motorcycle accident, please contact the Kenosha motorcycle accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874.
