Broward County bikers may try their best to avoid getting in an accident by taking life saving preventative measures. Research shows that the most severe motorcycle accidents are caused by inattentive vehicle drivers. Motorcyclists typically complain that they feel invisible on Broward County highways. Some bikers choose to wear reflective clothing and helmets, but tend to overlook the opportunity to make their bike stand out to distracted drivers. In advance, bikers would be wise to make vital improvements to their motorcycles that may help enhance the chances of being more visible to other motorists.
How to Make a Bike Less “Invisible” to Other Vehicles
- Headlight Modulator. Installing this device allows bikers to pulse the headlight to warn other drivers of their presence. Often used to prevent a vehicle from turning in front of an “invisible” motorcycle.
- Custom Motorcycle Lighting. Installing custom fit lamp kits are inexpensive and can save your life. High quality light bars allow for up to three lights to be strung across the bar and are easy to install, affordable, and may prevent an accident.
- Strobe Brake Light Kits. These innovative deceleration devices alert other drivers that you are slowing down before you even apply your brakes! Depending on the rate of deceleration, the strobe will send gentle or quick brake lights
While a motorcycle enthusiast may take every precautionary action possible to avoid getting in an accident, some accidents are simply unavoidable. Bikers who are injured from motorcycle accidents don’t realize that compensation is often their legal right. If you have sustained a motorcycle accident injury, then you may be eligible for financial recovery from your devastating loss.
