May is Motorcycle Awareness Month!

May is the month for motorcycle awareness. Motorcycle Awareness shouldn’t be confined to a single month but should be observed every single day of the year. However, May is the month when more riders come back to riding on the roads because it is the time when the weather is normally optimal for cruising.

Drivers and motorists everywhere should be aware of motorcyclists around them. Motorcyclists are the most vulnerable when traveling on the roads because of them not being encaged in a vehicle but practically exposed to what ever is coming their way. Motorcycle Awareness month is to remember to “share the road” with motorcycles and to help keep them safe.

“Surviving the ride must be foremost in the mind of every motorcyclist. This means taking a motorcycle safety course, wearing the proper gear, using a Department of Transportation compliant helmet and staying alert,” CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow said. “Every vehicle has its place on the road, but motorcyclists face additional dangers because motorcycles require exceptional handling ability and are more difficult to see.”

group ride

The Los Angeles Police Department is taking the opportunity this year to encourage drivers and motorists to keep motorcyclists safe on the roads. About one-sixth of all vehicle accidents fatalities are motorcyclists. Below is a list of cities with counts of motorcyclists deaths in four southern California counties in 2013.

  • In Los Angeles County, 102 motorcyclists died in crashes.
  • In San Diego County, 43 motorcyclists lost their lives in crashes.
  • In Riverside County, another 38 bikers died in accidents.
  • San Bernardino and Orange Counties lost 32 and 31 motorcyclists in wrecks, respectively.

Of all these motorcycle deaths 95% were wearing a helmet at the time, so it is sad to see that helmets do not always save lives, but it does give you a greater chance of you surviving a crash than to not wear one.

The age in a rider also seems to play a factor in motorcycle deaths. The age range of the highest amount of deaths are motorcyclists in their 20’s and the second most is in the 50’s. The lowest amount of motorcycle deaths were riders above the age of 60 years old.

IMPORTANT SAFETY REMINDERS FOR MOTORCYCLISTS

  • Wear the proper safety gear at all times, including a DOT-compliant helmet
  • Obey the speed limit – excess speed is the most common rider-related factor in motorcycle related crashes
  • Don’t drink and ride – DUI is a leading cause of motorcycle crashes
  • Ride within your own limits – don’t be a victim of peer pressure
  • Ride defensively – assume other drivers don’t see you

In addition to ensuring motorcyclists drive safely and responsibly, they should know their legal rights. If you are a motorcyclist that is involved in a motorcycle accident call The Reinecke Law firm at (800)275-8326 for a free case evaluation. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries or damaged property.

Wednesday Bike nights at Cook’s Corner

If you are a biker in Orange County or a biker just passing through you need to check out Cook’s Corner. Cook’s Corner is a biker bar off of El Toro and Live Oak Canyon Road. It is considered one of the best dive bars to go to and especially on Wednesday nights when there is All-you-Can-Eat Spaghetti, Salad, and Bread for only $4. What a steal on the price.

Where else can you go eat all you can eat for $4, not to mention the place is lively with small bands playing and lots of bikers with their awesome motorcycles. Motorcycles line up and down the road all in almost perfect alignment. Everyone is there to enjoy the atmosphere and hangout with friends.

Cook’s Corner has quite of history of it’s own. It’s name originates from Andrew Jackson Cook, who got around 190 acres of Aliso Canyon in a land trade in 1884. In 1926, his son, Earl Jack “E.J.” Cook converted a cabin into a restaurant for miners and local ranchers.

After Prohibition ended in 1933, alcohol began being sold, and Cook’s Corner became a full-fledged bar. In 1946, Cook bought an old mess hall from the Santa Ana Army Air Base and the tavern was born. In 1970, a Santa Ana motorcycle accessories owner purchased it and Cooks Corner was molded into what it represents today…an old-fashioned roadhouse. Cook’s (as it is normally referred) is still as rugged-looking as a World War II-era-mess-hall-turned-biker-bar should look.

Come out and enjoy Wednesday Bike night every Wednesday, Rain or Shine. There will be great music from live bands and many people riding their show bikes. It’s a great place to relax and enjoy the time away from work, not to mention the roads around are great fun to ride. Just be sure that you ride safely.

Be sure to purchase a cap or shirt as a souvenir on your way out.

 

All Girls Ride from Anaheim to Long Beach cut short due to Accident

February 21, 2016 was a day of excitement for most girls that ride motorcycles that is until the All Girls Ride event was cut short due to a huge accident on the freeway causing a few of the 20+ riders to go down.

The day started out with the ride from Anaheim with a big pack of women riders. 10-15 minutes into the ride the riders got on the 91 freeway heading to Long Beach when the accident occurred.

The cause of the accident was a white sedan  traveling on the 91 freeway that had rear-ended a silver sedan causing it to veer into traffic and into the pack of  girl motorcyclists traveling in the carpool lane. Luckily no one was killed and there were only a few of the riders were injured with broken bones.

A few of the women riders were wearing GoPros on the ride and we can watch the video below of what happened. All of it happened so sudden and unexpected.

If you or a loved one were involved in a motorcycle accident like the one above please give the Reinecke Law Firm a call at 1(800)275-8326. Prayers up to the riders and their injuries from this motorcycle ride from all of us at the Reinecke Law Firm.
