The summer weather has given riders a reason to pull their motorcycles out of the garage and hit the road. The freedom that riding a motorcycle gives you is unmatched… but so is the danger. 2012 ended a three-year streak of declining motorcycle fatalities in Colorado when 79 riders lost their lives on our highways. We can only hope that 2013 is a better year.
Unfortunately, we’re often reminded of the dangers that motorcyclists face when cruising around our state. In fact, just last week an accident at the corner of Cheyenne Boulevard and Wolfe Avenue occurred that sent a rider to the hospital. He was traveling down Cheyenne when a car failed to yield at an intersection. The biker slammed into the vehicle and was ejected off his bike.
While the rider survived, his condition is still unknown. It was reported, however, that he was wearing both a helmet and protective gear which may have very well saved his life. The driver of the car was cited for the collision, but criminal charges are yet to be filed.
So many similar accidents occur because motorists claim that they didn’t see the biker until it was too late. That’s why it’s so important to be incredibly cautious if you’re someone who rides a motorcycle. Don’t ever assume another vehicle sees you. Making the effort to be seen just might save your life.
