Louisiana State Police Provide Education and Safety Instruction to Baton Rouge Motorcycle Riders
Last year in Louisiana, there were 1,951 traffic accidents involving motorcycles. 80 motorcyclists involved in those accidents were fatally injured. The numbers of riders that are either injured or killed in motorcycle accidents in Louisiana is far too high, and State Police are working with riders to help cut down on the number of fatal motorcycle accidents in our state.
Last weekend, the Louisiana State Police organized their first motorcycle safety training class of 2016. This class, known as the Louisiana Motorcycle Safety, Awareness, and Operator Training Program, aims to make motorcyclists safer by ensuring that riders are properly prepared before they get out on the road.
Topics covered by these motorcycle safety classes include:
- Traffic and driver safety
- How to make sure you are visible to other cars and trucks on the road at all times
- Proper safety equipment
- How to safely maneuver on a motorcycle
- And much more
