Motorcycle Safety Course Offers Fort Campbell Soldiers a Chance to Give Back

by Staff Blogger | October 3rd, 2014

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.

Spring is in the air in Middle Tennessee and with the warmer weather, motorists in the region can expect to begin seeing a rise in the volume of motorcycles that are taking to the road. This increase in the number of bikes on roads and highways inevitably will lead to a growing number of Tennessee Motorcycle Accidents occurring.

This leaves many riders wondering what they can do to help stay safe while on the road. Most experts will agree that participating in a motorcycle training course is one of the best ways to reduce the chances of being involved in an accident, regardless of the rider’s experience level.

The Tennessee Motorcycle Rider Education Program is a state-sponsored course that can give motorcyclists the skills and knowledge they need to safely operate a motorized bike. This is achieved through both academic and hands-on coursework.

Participants will go through several classroom sessions where safety, laws of the road, and certain techniques will be discussed. Then, riders will gear up and practice what they have learned on a closed course under instructor supervision.

The Nashville Personal Injury Lawyers with Ponce Law applaud the efforts being made by the state of Tennessee to keep motorcyclists safe, and encourage all riders to participate in one of the many upcoming courses that are being offered.
