Same rules applies to powerbike owners and okada riders
1)Wear a helmet
Evidence overwhelmingly suggests that wearing a motorcycle helmet significantly reduces the incidence of head injuries in accidents.
2)Get a motorcycle license
It is required that bikers get a special motorcycle license in order to ride on the roads.
3)Get professional training
Motorcycle riders who are self-taught or taught by friends account for more than 90 percent of bikers involved in motorcycle accidents. Getting professional training in motorcycle riding could save your life.
4)Don’t drink and ride
About half of the accidents involving a single motorcycle are caused by speeding or alcohol use –usually these go hand in hand. Not only is it against the law to drink and ride a motorcycle, its extremely dangerous.
5)Wear protective clothing
Protect yourself by wearing goggles or sunglasses, a jacket, full- fingered gloves, long pants, and boots. Your clothing should be made of abrasion-resistant material, such as leather, and fit close to the body.
6)Maintain your bike
Don’t confine your maintenance to the engine and brakes. Frequently check your tyres, headlamps, turn signals and other gear.
7)Don’t share lanes
Cars don’t expect to be sharing a lane with other vehicles. Drivers tend to look for cars in other lanes, and often wont notice a motorcycle sharing a lane with them.
8) Know your skill level
Know your skills, and ride accordingly. Riding on the road is not the time to test your expertise or to overestimate your ability.
9)Learn about the common causes of motorcycle accidents
Knowledge is your friend. Learn about the most common situations that lead to motorcycle accidents.
10)Avoid road hazards
Road hazards, including debris in the road or slick conditions, are more dangerous for motorcycles than for cars and can lead to severe injuries.
