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 ( 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 ( 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!

On my bike at the Bikers Helping Bikers Event

As many of you know, I am a lifelong biker and Charleston personal injury, criminal defense and workers compensation lawyer who serves the entire South Carolina tri-county area. One of my passions is to help bikers and others understand their rights on and off the road, stay educated on current and upcoming motorcycle legislation, and stay posted on upcoming motorcycle rallies and events in South Carolina.

Because my main goal with this blog is to facilitate conversation among the biker community in the lowcountry and elsewhere in the world, I’d love to welcome all of the Biker’s Law readers to send me any pictures, news, or event information pertaining to motorcycles. Whether you just restored your bike and want to showcase it on our blog, are attending an upcoming biker event that you want to spread awareness about, or want to share your advice on biker safety, I invite you to send any of your submissions to me at

I look forward to hearing from you all!
