Accident Avoidance Tips

On October 26, 2010, in Safety Tips, by admin

Armed with Blackberries, iPhones and Garmins, today’s multi-tasking drivers rarely keep both eyes, or their undivided attention, on the road.  Defensive driving can be the difference between a trip to the hospital and a close call.  Techniques like counter steering, controlling skids, and clutch control can help you avoid potential accidents caused by others.

ABATE of South Carolina posted an excellent “Individual Motorcycle Safety Guide,” by motorcycle instructor Jim DeWitt, on their website which outlines some helpful accident avoidance techniques. Click here to view the article.

If  you feel like you need some motorcycle road training and formal instruction, there are plenty of classes available. S.M.A.R.T Course (www.smartcourse.net) is based out of North Charleston and offers courses for both beginner and experienced riders and even has a street smart workshop. South Carolina Motorcycle Education program (www.scridered.org) offer classes across the state and also caters to all skill levels. If you are in the lowcountry, their classes meet at Trident Technical College.

If anyone has attended a course and would like to comment, we would love to hear from you!
