Snow is paralyzing the Northeast, with areas of East Tennessee getting more than a foot of snow for the first time in decades. Millions have spent a good part of January snowed-in.livetoride-300x225

In Florida, it’s time to get out the motorcycles and go for a ride! The next two months are prime winter-riding season here in Florida. Daytona Bike Week in February will bring thousands of riders from all over the country to the Florida Coast. Here in Southwest Florida, we have a number of events, including Cape Coral Bike Nights, the areas premiere family friendly motorcycle event:

  • Cape Coral Bike Night Feb. 10, 2024.

It is one of our many outreach efforts aimed at interacting with our friends in the riding community while promoting motorcycle safety and awareness in the general public.

Motorcycle Safety Awareness in SWFL

Our motorcycle accident lawyers know the vast majority of the riding community are responsible, fun-loving, safety conscious adults. Nobody knows the risks of riding in Southwest Florida more than a veteran motorcycle rider. They don’t need a lecture. What they need is for motorists to pay more attention, and to give the rider the benefit of the doubt — and the right of way — when an encounter forces such a choice. Because a rider cannot stop. It’s that simple.

Among the most common scenarios responsible for the majority of serious and fatal motorcycle collisions:

  • Failure to yield: A motorists turns left in front of an oncoming rider.
  • Intersections: Look twice for motorcycles. Then look a third time. Make sure not only that you have right of way, but that nothing is coming.
  • Rear-end collisions: A surprising number of collisions involving a motor vehicle and a motorcycle occur when a motorcycle is rear-ended. Motorcycles take several moments to begin travel from a dead stop and several more to get up to speed. They begin slowing early, often by downshifting which does not activate brake lights. They are also prone to being rear-ended while preparing to make a turn.
  • Forced roadway departure: In a variety of scenarios, an at-fault motorist can force a rider to leave the roadway. Unfortunately, in many cases the driver does not remain at the scene.

After half a century of courtroom and community advocacy, we are proud of the relationships we have built and the friends we have met while protecting the rights of injured riders and their families. We are equally proud of the work we have done in the community, raising awareness, and reducing the risks for everyone. We look forward to seeing everyone at Cape Coral Bike Night!
