May 2024 is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month

Motorcycle Awareness Month is observed in May each year and was instituted by the National Safety Council. It’s the perfect month to remind drivers and motorcyclists to take extra care—to respect and share the road.

Moreover, the campaign is crucial in educating riders about the inherent risks of motorcycling and how to mitigate them. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, 6,218 motorcyclists were killed in traffic crashes last year. Despite motorcycles constituting a mere 3% of registered vehicles in the U.S., they account for a staggering 15% of fatal crashes annually, underscoring the need for heightened awareness and safety measures.

Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month

At Glen Larson Law Injury Attorneys, we understand road safety is a two-way street. Everyone on the road is responsible for safety—passenger cars, trucks, pedestrians, and motorcyclists. May provides our law firm and others who advocate for and prioritize motorcycle safety to raise awareness and help keep riders safe in Texas and nationwide.

How Glen Larson Law Injury Attorneys Promotes Motorcycle Safety

Riding a motorcycle requires heightened awareness and more strength and coordination than driving a car. It also involves more risks than driving a car since riders are significantly more vulnerable in a crash. Because of their narrow profile, motorcycles often are not seen or seen too late.. Other motorists, particularly those who don’t ride, may not be looking for motorcycles in traffic. This places the motorcyclist at risk, particularly at intersections.

Training and education can manage all these risks.

Glen Larson Law regularly sponsors Accident Scene Management classes throughout Texas to help riders understand what they can do at the scene of an accident until help arrives so they can help save lives.

Glen Larson, founder and managing attorney at Glen Larson Law, is the 2024 president of North American Motorcycle Injury Lawyers (NAMIL). He provides more than experienced legal representation for motorcycle accident injury victims and families who have lost their loved ones while riding. He is a leader in the motorcycle community and founder of Biker Wolfpack Law, the exclusive sponsor of Austin’s Teddy Morse Cowboy Harley Davidson.

As staunch advocates for motorcycle safety, everyone at Glen Larson Law applauds the efforts of those who promote Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month in May and year-round.
