Respecting each motorist's right of way is essential to help assure accident prevention. Not following traffic regulations and being unaware of other vehicles are sure fire ways of endangering lives.

Many Americans, including Floridians, enjoy riding motorcycles for pleasure, as well as for basic transportation. These vehicles offer a variety of advantages, such as low operating costs and the ability to move quickly through even the densest traffic. Unfortunately, motorcycles also have a downside, which includes higher risks of accidents with greater chances of serious injuries and death.
A motorcycle ride around Florida can be a liberating experience and can get a driver to a desired destination faster and with less gasoline expenses. A drawback to riding a motorcycle is the limited safety protection for the rider and passenger in the event of a crash.
