Concern for the safety of Colorado motorcyclists

Although the season for riding motorcycles is winding down, there are still at least a couple of months left when Colorado residents can enjoy riding through this state's many mountain passes and scenic byways. Of course, it is important that when they take the roads, motorcyclists do so safely. In particular, wearing the proper helmet and protective gear, such as a leather jacket, gloves and goggles, is a great way to prevent severe injuries, including brain injuries and burn injuries, should there be a motorcycle accident.

However, while we want motorcyclists in our state to ride safely, we also understand that safety is a two-way street. Drivers in other vehicles frequently are not on the lookout for motorcyclists and thus simply do not see them approaching. Motorcyclists have just as much of a right to share the road as anyone else. Drivers must have the proper experience and attentiveness to make sure that the motorcyclists with whom they share the road stay safe. This is true no matter the weather and road conditions, but drivers must pay special attention in bad weather or when on windy or poorly maintained roads.

In the aftermath of an accident, a motorcyclist could suffer severe if not debilitating injuries, assuming of course that the motorcyclist survives the accident at all. Injuries can include significant brain damage or a paralyzing injury to the spinal cord. It is also not uncommon for a motorcyclist to face the amputation of an arm or leg after an accident.
