Driving distractions and motorcycle accidents

The summer months are a great time for Minnesota residents to get out of their homes and enjoy road trips. While some may choose to take their rides in their four-wheeled vehicles, others may elect to cross the state on their motorcycles. Motorcycles are an efficient and safe means of travel when drivers and motorcyclists both abide by the rules of the road. When drivers allow distractions to cloud their operating skills, however, motorcyclists can be seriously hurt.

Safety considerations when children are present

School may be out for the summer for most Minnesota kids but that does not mean that drivers will stop seeing them out on local roads. As temperatures climb and children look for ways to have fun, they may increase their trips to their local parks, pools, and other areas of recreation. As they do, they may travel on foot to get to their destinations.

Staying safe on the Minnesota roads means avoiding text messages

There are many myths out there about safe texting on the road. Some people think that teenagers are the only ones who cause crashes when they text and drive. Other people might think that it is okay to read a message, as long as they use voice to text program to compose their response. The truth is that there is no safe way to text while in control of a vehicle.
