Celebrate National Ride to Work Day in New Orleans
National Ride to Work Day takes place on June 15, 2020 and Mike Brandner Injury Attorneys hopes that motorcycle riders throughout New Orleans participate in this great event. When driven safely, motorcycles and scooters help keep streets less congested, while adding less carbon emissions to the environment.
What Is National Ride To Work Day?
Ride To Work is an annual event that takes place on the third Monday of June. The organization advocates the use of motorcycles and scooters for transportation, and provides information about transportation riding to the public. It is a day that was enacted to help raise awareness about driving with a higher sense of consciousness for those riding the roads on motorcycles.
Being Safe On The Roads
Practicing safe and defensive driving techniques is not just important on Ride to Work Day–it’s important every time you get into your vehicle. If everyone made a pledge to be safer on the roads, New Orleans would see fewer tragic accidents. Here are some examples of the types of behaviors that result in the majority of injuries and fatalities on the roads:
- Driving under the influence
- Distracted driving
- Failing to share the road with bikers, pedestrians, etc.
- Road rage incidents
- Speeding and reckless driving
Most drivers have been guilty of committing at least one of these bad habits while on the roads. However, if everyone would pledge to do even just one thing to be more responsible while driving, like never texting and driving, the roads would be a lot safer.
Injured On The Roads?
Sometimes a motorcycle accident is simply unavoidable—and when accidents happen, injuries are usually involved. It is important that you understand all of your rights.
First and foremost, it’s vital to receive proper treatment for any injuries. Your health should always come first!
