Temperatures are rising across New York and motorcycle enthusiasts are beginning to bring their vehicles out of winter storage. With an increase in the number of motorcycles traveling on state roads, New York State Police have deemed May Motorcycle Safety Month in order to bring awareness to the challenges of traversing local roadways on a motorcycle or with motorcycles.
Law enforcement reports that many people who suffer injuries as a result of motorcycle accidents are individuals who were not properly trained in motorcycle safety. Noting that driving a motorcycle is a skill that requires practice, law enforcement encourages motorcycle drivers to ease back into riding and to wear proper protective gear. Despite the suggestions provided by the New York State Police, many people here in Nassau County and across the state will likely be injured in vehicle-motorcycle accidents, and those seeking assistance with recovering for their injuries should contact a local Nassau County motorcycle accidents attorney.
