Take a Course!
Whether you’re just learning to ride or you’re a well-seasoned pro, the Motorcycle Safety Foundation has made available multiple safety e-courses to tap into. You can access them online via iTunes U, iBooks, and apps to keep you on top of your game and maybe reduce your insurance premium as well.
It may be hard to believe, but if you’re a pro biker, you know — trucks and cars are seldom aware that you are sharing the roads with them. Automobile operator inattention is one of the leading causes of fatal accidents overall, and you can take steps to avoid contributing to their statistics.
Practice emergency maneuvers; stay on the defensive and devise strategic plans to escape; choose to be the one to adjust your speed and lane position rather than expecting others to make way for you. Wear bright colors and light colored helmets; keep your headlights on. Don’t hesitate to use your horn to get a driver’s attention!
Remember that bikers are out there with little to no protection and not much control over the outcome when you don’t see them coming. All licensed and insured vehicles have a right to share the roadways — safely!
Expect the unexpected and save yourself and others from serious injuries or fatality. Motorcyclists are seldom that visible while you’re operating a truck or driving your car down the street or highways. Bikers drop into sight and are noticed in an abrupt moment of clarity — how alert you are can determine whether their appearance prompts a collision!
Our zero-fee guarantee is one of our most important promises to clients; our efforts are only monetarily rewarded when our clients experience the best outcome possible. And, that’s the way it should be; you should expect total dedication when you put your future in our hands.
Auger & Auger is ready to fight for you, and take on whatever challenges present themselves; from colossal corporations to the most prominent insurance carriers — we’ve got you covered.
