Spring is around the corner – the grass is getting greener, flowers are pushing up through the soil, and you are eyeing the motorcycle that has been waiting patiently in the garage all winter. Last year, we shared four tips for preventing motorcycle accidents and injuries in the springtime. Here are a few more:
- Be wary of sand and gravel. Highway officials put sand on the roads in winter to increase traction and prevent accidents. Ironically, though, this same sand can become a real hazard for motorcycles in spring. Be on the lookout for sand and gravel, especially near shoulders and on turns.
- Beware the pothole. The birds are out, the first pair of shorts is worn… and the potholes appear. It must be spring. While potholes are not a huge hazard for four-wheeled vehicles, they can be very dangerous and even deadly for motorcycles. Keep your eyes open.
- Look out for ice on bridges and overpasses. The snow and ice might be gone from most places, but slick conditions can remain on bridges, overpasses, and ramps for weeks into spring, especially after rain or at night when temperatures drop.
