Motorcyclists and Road Safety

Never drop your guard

Never drop your guard Never drop your guard

When you are riding a motorcycle your body is completely exposed to danger. Nothing protects you. If you fall off, it is your body that takes —and breaks—the impact. The risk of dying in a traffic accident is 17 times more likely on a motorcycle than in a car.

This means that when it comes to riding a motorcycle, you can never afford to drop your guard. Always be aware of the vehicles around you so that you can react in time in any situation of risk. Obeying the speed limits and maintaining an appropriate speed will help you keep the motorcycle under control. Assess your physical condition, avoid getting tired and always take into account external conditions such as weather conditions that could endanger your safety.

Fundación MAPFRE provides you with essential information that will help you ride safely, carry the right equipment and be up-to-date with the latest developments regarding road safety.

Our objective is to prevent more motorcyclists dying on the roads. Our objective is to save your life.
