Motorcycle Safety Month – The SEE System
Search, Evaluate and Execute
May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness month so we here at The Sidecar and Motorcycle.com want to make you AWARE!
The lovely folks at Motorcycle.com have posted an interesting article on the SEE system. Search, Evaluate and Execute. This handy acronym is to help remind you, as a motorcycle rider, to make yourself visible on the road to other vehicles.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), when compared to operators of a passenger vehicle, motorcyclists on American highways in 2006 had a 35 times greater chance of being killed per vehicle mile traveled.
Studies show that because motorcycles are much smaller, they may not be “seen” or fully, consciously registered in the minds of other motorists.
35 times greater!
It’s a cruel world out there, the Motorcycle Safety Foundation believe it all comes down to you to protect yourself.
