This mournful incident once again reminds us that why road safety is so important. Here is a list of road safety measures you should consider before heading out of your home and while being on the road.

Learn to ride first

Do not even think of riding a bike if you don’t know how to ride it. Most accidents occur because of lack of riding skills. Learn to ride a bike and then only take a bike for a ride.

 

Get all the right gears

Safety is better than precautions. Get all the right gears before riding. Buy helmet, guards, body cover and boots etc. to safeguard yourself from possible injuries.

 

Save your feet first

You must always at any cost save your feet. To change between gears, you constantly move your toes up and down, making your feet pain fast. Proper shoes are always the prime need of a biker after a helmet.

 

Concentration on the road

You must always have your concentrate on the road. Most of the accidents happen because of distortion while riding. If you are on a bike, you must have your concentration on road and the vehicles around you.

 

Keep safe distance from other vehicles

When you are on your bike or car, you should always keep a safe distance from other vehicles. Riding or driving too close to other vehicles heaves the chances of colliding into them.

 

Keep the weather in check

It’s a part of a precautionary measure; you should always keep the weather forecast in check because riding in heavy rains or in heavy snow is dangerous and can lead to accidents.

 

Do not have to speed

At any cost, in any circumstances, do not speed up. Maintain a neutral speed. Most accidents happen due to over speeding.
