In our last post, we mentioned that May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month and began speaking about two particularly important messages about which the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is attempting to educate the public with respect to motorcycle safety. The first of these, as we mentioned, is the importance of road-sharing, while the other is the importance of sober riding.
Drinking and riding is especially important for motorcyclists to avoid, first of all because they are most at risk in an accident with another vehicle. This is particularly the case with larger vehicles. In addition to the sheer threat of injury, there is also the possibility of not being able to recover full damages if another driver causes an accident. What do we mean by this?
