As a biker in Virginia, you know that dangers for bikers abound. While you do everything you can to avoid a motorcycle accident, you should always be prepared for the possibility that you will be involved in one. Many people assume, mistakenly, that having a cell phone is enough to allow them to get the help they need, should they crash.
Be Prepared for a Virginia Motorcycle Accident
While a cell phone is a good start, you should have more than that in a motorcycle accident preparedness kit. We suggest that you carry, secured to your person, such as in an internal jacket pocket, at least a cell phone and a small signal light. If you are thrown from your bike and unable to reach your pack or saddlebags, your phone may be the key to getting help. However, you should not rely on the phone alone. The phone could have broken in the impact or be out of range. A light or glow stick can help you signal for help in the event you have crashed away from the road.
