Motorcyclists throughout Washington, Maryland and Northern Virginia will soon be on the road in large numbers as the motorcycling season begins. Just in time for the season comes an iBook released by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation. The iBook is called “Intersection: Sharing the Road” and is available exclusively for iPADs.
The Motorcycle Safety Foundation says that the iBook was designed to make motorists aware of the rights of motorcyclists. According to the Motorcycle Safety Foundation, more than 35 percent of accidents involving motorcyclists each year are due to errors by other motorists.
The Washington motorcycle accident lawyer at The Abelson Law Firm, find that motorist negligence and failure to yield to motorcyclists contribute to most collisions.
The iBook contains illustrations of potentially hazardous motorcycle accident situations, as seen through the eyes of motorists. It also has plenty of photographs, videos and images as well as interactive diagrams targeted at motorcyclists and other motorists. The iBook is in an interactive format, and users can make their own notes, highlight important sections and use of an inbuilt dictionary.
The Motorcycle Safety Foundation is an international organization, supported by motorcycle manufacturers, that raises awareness about motorcycle safety. The organization says that it is currently trying to make more motorcycle safety content, including conferences and other programs, available for free download.
It is easy for drivers to overlook a motorcycle because of its slim frame. However, a driver’s negligence can prove deadly. Any accident involving a passenger vehicle and motorcycle usually ends in catastrophic injuries or death for the motorcyclist.
