Give Your Passenger a Lesson on Safety to Prevent a Seattle Motorcycle Crash

Cruising through the streets of Seattle with a passenger on your bike is one of the perks of living in this beautiful city and of owning a motorcycle. Having someone on the back of your motorcycle could be dangerous, unless the passenger is informed of how to stay safe. However, giving your passenger a lesson in safety before you set out can be one of the best ways to prevent a Seattle motorcycle crash from occurring.

Here are essential tips to share:

  • Your Passenger Should Wear the Proper Gear. Before you let the passenger sit down, make sure he is wearing the proper clothing and gear. Long pants, long-sleeved shirts, boots, gloves, and a helmet are all essential in protecting him if a crash should occur.
  • Your Passenger Should Minimize Distractions. Although having someone sitting behind you on the bike is enjoyable, it can also be quite distracting. Tell your passenger to limit arm gestures, conversation, or anything else that could cause you to take your attention away from the road.
  • Ensure Your Passenger is Responsible Enough. Having your child or another young person share this experience with you is certainly memorable, but could be extremely dangerous. Some children get excited and let go of the driver or bike, and the results are often devastating. Ensure that a young person sitting behind you understands the responsibility and knows what to do to stay safe.

If despite your best efforts you are still the victim of a Seattle motorcycle crash, the Andrew Kim Law Firm wants to help. Contact us today to speak with an attorney about your situation.
