Riding in the Snow

Snow is what defines Salt Lake City. Utah is known to have the “Best Snow on Earth”, which attracts tourists from all around the nation. While it may be a miracle from nature, snow is also a hazard when it comes to driving. Vehicles are already a huge danger, especially in the snow, which makes motorcycles that much more dangerous to ride when the roads are icy.

An auto accident can already prove to be extremely lethal, but without the extra protection of a frame surrounding you, a motorcycle accident is almost a guaranteed tragedy.

However, if you find yourself taking the risk in riding in the snow, there are a few safety precautions to take to ensure your safety ⎯ you’ll want to do all you can to avoid an accident, but also remember that an attorney from Robert J. DeBry and Associates will have your back if the accident was not your fault.

Dress Appropriately

Just like in the summertime, it is recommended that you wear padded clothing that covers your skin. In case of a motorcycle accident, you can save some of the skin on your back by just wearing the proper attire. The call to your lawyer will be that much easier without road burn on your hands.

Mod Your Bike

The most important part of a motorcycle to be mindful of are the tires. You’ll want to make sure you have the appropriate tires to avoid losing control over your motorcycle while on the ice. You can add studs, spikes or screws to get more traction while on the road.

Ride Responsibly

Although your attire and studded tires may make you feel safe, it’s important to avoid getting reckless. Take it slow, and avoid changing lanes multiple times if it’s unnecessary.

If you or someone you know has been involved in an accident, call our attorney team here at Robert J. DeBry and Associates.
