Attempting to Curb Motorcycle Crashes With Safety Programs in Georgia

Anyone who has ever driven a motorcycle or a dirt bike can tell you it is nothing like operating a car. For motorcycle riders, expertise, balance and coordination are crucial.

Lack of understanding about how to operate the bike, coupled with ignorance on safe speeds, is a recipe for disaster for any rider
. It should come as no surprise that many motorcycle accidents can be blamed on rider inexperience.

The Georgia Department of Driver Services works to curb this trend with mandatory motorcycle safety courses. The courses are required to apply for a Class M license in the state, and consist of a $250 basic skills course. It covers vital skills such as swerving, cornering and emergency breaking with provided motorcycles.

For motorcycle riders who have been on the road a while, there is a $100 experienced rider course that can serve as a refresher course in motorcycle safety techniques.

While these classes can cut down on motorcycle accidents in Georgia, crashes can still occur. If you have taken a motorcycle safety course, secured a license, were driving safely and got in an accident because of another driver's negligence, you may be able to seek damages for any injuries you sustained.
