MOTORCYCLE SAFETY
AWARENESS IN TEXAS
Motorcycle Safety, Tips for Bikers and Motorists, and a Few Popular Events
evanstxlaw.com
THE PERFECT STATE FOR
MOTORCYCLISTS?
Texans love their motorcycles. With more
miles of road than any other state in the
country, beautiful scenic routes and
perfect weather for biking, it’s no
coincidence that there are so many
motorcycles on Texas roads.
Unfortunately, there are also many
motorcycle accidents in Texas; but by
observing a few safety tips, we can make
our roads safer for bikers and other
drivers alike.

MAY IS MOTORCYCLE SAFETY
AWARENESS MONTH
The observance of Motorcycle
Awareness Month is intended
as much for other vehicle
drivers as it is for motorcyclists.
“Sharing the road” is a common
theme of motorcycle safety
campaigns, and rightfully so.
Studies show that motorists are
responsible for over half of
accidents involving motorcycles.

TEXAS MOTORCYCLE
ACCIDENT STATISTICS
• On average, a motorcyclist is killed in
Texas every single day.
• In 2015, 455 motorcyclists died and
1,867 suffered serious injuries in Texas
motorcycle crashes.
• Motorcyclists are 26 times more likely
to be killed in a traffic accident than
passenger car occupants.
• Helmets are 37 percent effective in
preventing motorcycle fatalities, and 67
percent effective in preventing brain
injuries.

MOTORCYCLE SAFETY TIPS
FOR BIKERS
• Learn and practice defensive driving
• Make yourself visible to other motorists.
• Avoid riding your motorcycle in bad weather.
• Pay special attention to road hazards.
• Always wear appropriate protective gear, and encourage riders to do the
same.
• Perform routine safety checks of your motorcycle.
• When buying a new motorcycle, always make sure that it is proportional to
your body size.
• Avoid splitting a single lane with other motorcyclists.

SHARING THE ROAD WITH
MOTORCYCLISTS
• Give motorcycles a full lane.
• Be on the lookout for
motorcyclists at intersections.
• Always use turn signals and
check your mirrors when
changing lanes, even if you don’t
immediately see another vehicle
or bike.
• Never follow a bike too closely.
• Assume that motorcyclists are
closer than they appear.

ENJOYING THE MOTORCYCLE
COMMUNITY
Part of the fun of being a biker is the connection
you have to other motorcycle enthusiasts.
Fortunately, there are many popular events for
motorcyclists, some of which are specifically
geared to bikers. Let’s take a look at few of the
most popular events for motorcyclists in Texas.
evanstxlaw.com
ROT BIKER RALLY
The Republic Of Texas Biker
Rally – the ROT Biker Rally -
is the biggest motorcycle
rally in Texas. Last year, the
event had over 60,000
participants. In 2016, the event
is being held from June 9th to
June 12th at the Travis Expo
Center in Austin. Bikers flock to
the event to see new
motorcycle designs,
accessories, parts, motorcycle
races and live music.
evanstxlaw.com
SOUTH BY SOUTHWEST
South by Southwest (SXSW) is
one of the most popular events in
the country, and a great
destination for bikers. Festivals
and conferences host music, film
and interactive media, drawing
fans from all over the world. The
event began in 1987, growing in
size and scope every year since
its inception. It is held in mid-
March every year.
evanstxlaw.com
AUSTIN CITY LIMITS MUSIC
FESTIVAL
For 15 years, the Austin City Limits Music Festival
has been host to some of the best musical acts in
the world. ACL is held over two weekends. This
year, the event is taking place September 30th
to October 2nd and October 7th to October 9th
at Zilker Park. The festival has grown to include 8
stages and over 130 bands.

MOTORCYCLE SAFETY
CONCERNS AT AUSTIN EVENTS
There is always a greater risk of
accidents at these events due to
the high number of attendees,
tourists and traffic. Motorcycle
wrecks are a major concern at the
ROT Rally. For example, there
were over 200 crashes at the ROT
Rally in 2014. Attendees are
asked to be extra cautious at
these events and to be especially
mindful of increases in traffic.
