Motorcycle Safety in Illinois

    IDOT offers the following safety tips as part of the "Gear Up" campaign:
  • Wear the proper gear, including a DOT-approved helmet, goggles or glasses, long pants and gloves, and protective footwear. High-visibility clothing can offer added protection.
  • Make sure your bike is properly serviced and in good repair.
  • Take advantage of free training opportunities and other safety programs. IDOT will make 25,000 free training slots available in 2011 to riders of all skill levels.
  • Make sure you have the proper license and you obey all traffic laws. About 1 in 5 riders killed in accidents do not have the proper license.
  • Never drink and ride. Alcohol plays a part in more than one-third of all fatal motorcycle crashes.
  • Know your abilities and do not ride beyond them.
