Studies have shown that receiving formal training on how to ride a motorcycle can significantly reduce the chances of motorcycle accidents. Now, a group of soldiers in Middle Tennessee are using their motorcycle training as an opportunity to do good for others as well.
The Fort Campbell Courier reports soldiers with the 5th Special Forces Unit and the 101st Airborne Division spent several days partaking in the Motorcycle Safety Program, which offers participants instruction on how to safely operate motorcycles. The soldiers completed training in a classroom setting on topics such as cornering, swerving, and braking. Then they applied what they learned on a ride to Nashville to deliver teddy bears to children receiving care at the Children’s Hospital at TriStar Centennial. The ride not only let the soldiers practice some of the techniques they had learned during the course, but also gave them an opportunity to put a smiles on children’s’ faces.
At Ponce Law, we recognize the importance of motorcycle safety and giving back to the community. That’s why our team of Nashville personal injury lawyers would like to applaud these soldiers for their act of kindness and encourage you to participate in a motorcycle safety course if you’re considering learning to ride a motorcycle.
