Top Safety Tips to Avoid Motorcycle Accidents in Sacramento

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento motorcycle accident lawyer. 2016 was a difficult time for motorcycle riders around the country with 4,976 deaths caused by traffic accidents. California leads the nation with the number of motorcycles, which isn’t surprising since it has the highest population in the country. In 2016, there were 842,648 registered motorcycles in the state. Of course, this leads to an increased number of motorcycle crashes, many of them caused by negligent drivers of motor vehicles. Those numbers could be reduced if both motorists and motorcycle riders used more caution. Following are some safety suggestions for motorcycle riders.
