Georgia riders likely know that throughout our state we not only have great rides, but also great resources. Motorcycle enthusiasts are a unique community with a strong commitment to riding on the open road and also doing that safely and securely. Georgia’s Department of Driver Services (GDDS) has great programs for rider safety and training. Rider education sites around Georgia are easy to locate on the GDDS website and offer support to both experienced riders and new riders too.
The safety and security of motorcycle riders is important to those of us who support the rider community in different ways. We apply our legal expertise in helping those injured in motorcycle crashes to recover and to maneuver through the legal system. Since many motorcycle accidents occur at intersections and are caused by caged drivers’ failure to see a motorcyclist, we fully support the efforts to teach safest riding best practices. Avoidance may not always be possible, but learning best practices can help riders be more visible and defensive when sharing the road with other motor vehicles.
