Cold tires, snow and other factors play a role in winter crashes

The winter isn't normally a great time to ride a motorcycle, and there are many good reasons for that. For example, when it's icy outside, it's harder for people to stop. Without the safety of a vehicle's body around you, you could crash and end up with serious injuries. Another issue with motorcycles is that you're exposed to the cold air much more than if you're in a car. Instead of having heat on you and being able to warm up while you drive, you could become colder the longer you ride. That puts you at risk of crashing due to cold, hypothermia and other issues.

Why are truck accidents so dangerous for other drivers?

Commercial vehicles weigh up to 25 times more than personal vehicles. As a result, a crash with a commercial vehicle can be devastating to those in a passenger vehicle. The larger vehicle could crush the cabin, cause the front end to burst into flames or crush the vehicle from behind, pinning people inside and requiring emergency help to free them.

Distracted drivers put everyone at risk for serious injury

The world sometimes seems busier than ever, and smart phones give us the power to access important information at virtually any time. While these advancements allow society to grow, flourish and become even more productive than ever before, they also put us at risk.

58-year-old man killed while riding in bike lane

Cycling is dangerous, which is why many states ask cyclists to ride in bike lanes and to do what they can to move over when traffic is behind them. That doesn't always make a difference, though, like in this case involving the death of a 58-year-old man.

Keeping warm keeps you safe on your motorcycle

Driving a motorcycle has the potential to be a lot of fun, but when you're riding in the winter months, that drive automatically becomes more dangerous. With the potential for cold weather to impact your ability to drive safely, you need to be sure you dress appropriately.
