Motorcycles are a fun and economical way to explore scenic roadways and city streets across Nevada. The wonderful year-round climate makes Nevada a popular destination for motorcyclists. However, due to the lack of protection, motorcycle accidents are more likely to result in serious injury or death. An annual motorcycle celebration will be taking place very soon in Reno, and police are urging riders and drivers to be extra careful.
The event, known as Fall Street Vibrations, is very popular among the motorcycling community. Hundreds of motorcycles will be descending upon Reno to celebrate. In advance, the Nevada Highway Patrol is making safety preparations and launching awareness campaigns in hopes to keep the event accident free. According to the NHP, motorcycles are involved in one out of very six fatal accidents.
Statistically, motorcyclists are 27 times more likely to be killed in a crash than those traveling in passenger cars. The NHP are urging drivers to be patient with the influx of motorcycle traffic in Reno for the event. They say keeping a safe following distance and giving motorcyclists the room they deserve can go a long way in preventing accidents. Also, the NHP says motorcyclists should consider wearing bright clothing to make themselves more visible to other drivers and always wear protective gear.
Although motorcycles are an enjoyable way to travel, they can also be very dangerous. Those in Nevada who have been injured or suffered loss in motorcycle accidents could benefit from discussions with an experienced attorney. Damages from a successful claim could provide financial relief to struggling families
