Motorcycle Safety

We are passionate about motorcycle safety.
If you drive a car, watch out for motorcycles. They can be hard to see. In a collision between a car and a motorcycle, the car driver is usually at-fault.

If you ride a motorcycle, please wear a DOT-compliant helmet and full protective gear.

There are four components to a DOT-compliant motorcycle helmet:

  1. DOT sticker.
  2. An inch of hard polystyrene foam padding.
  3. A secure fastener, usually metal D-rings.
  4. A manufacturer’s label (DOT certified, date and size).

We support the work of the Motorcycle Safety Foundation.
