JUST A REMINDER TO ALL PINOY RIDERS
Pinoys love to ride motorcycles. In fact, it is a mode of transportation in many of our localities. However, it can also be a very dangerous ride if safety measures will not be followed.
There is no excuse for being involved in road accident if you are riding your two-wheel drive unsafe. In using a motorcycle, riders should always be reminded that they should be extra careful because unlike cars, motorcycles do not have covers and airbags that will protect them from the impact of a collision or crash. Even though we are not asking for these tragedies to occur, we cannot neglect that it is a possibility.
Effects of accidents may be fatal, and in some cases riders get killed. It is a reality we cannot deny, but we can always prevent these instances from happening. The quote “prevention is better than cure” will not be a famous adage for nothing, and it applies very true even in motorcycle riding.
If you are a motorcyclist who values your life, the feeling of the people who loves you, as well as the safety of others, you have to ensure that you are following the two approaches for a safe motorcycle ride.
#1. Ride With Care
Many riders think that keeping their selves protected in their ride is the only way to ensure safety in public roadways. If you are one of the riders who are thinking of the same way, you may be wrong this time. Definitely, keeping yourself protected is one of the solutions, however, there is a primary way that you must always follow at all times. What is it? That is practicing your “duty of care” when you are traversing public roadways.
#2. Follow Traffic Rules
Following traffic rules, being concern of others, and being extra careful when you travel will not only benefit you, but other people who are using the road the same as you. There are plenty of motorcyclists who are neglecting their duty because they become overconfident that they are wearing gears. As much as possible, be responsible in riding. By riding right, you are making a very big difference.
