U. S. Army Suggestions for Avoiding Motorcycle Accidents near Military Bases like Fort Hood

By King Law Firm on March 7, 2013

In an article posted in the official safety magazine of the U.S. Army, Knowledge, titled “A Leader’s Guide to Motorcycle Mentorship,” military commanders are offered advice on keeping motorcyclist soldiers safe. The Army feels that leaders who are concerned and engaged can help prevent injuries and deaths due to motorcycle accidents.

Motorcycle accident lawyer Ray King’s life changed when he saw a friend injured in a motorcycle crash and then mistreated by an insurance company. Just because his friend rode a motorcycle, the company was biased against him. Since then he has dedicated his legal practice to helping Texas motorcyclists whose rights have been violated.

The U.S. Army advocates a motorcycle mentorship program (MMP) along with Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) basic and experienced rider courses. New riders should be paired with experienced riders who serve as mentors until certain safety milestones are met.

High-Risk Riders

The following examples are offered to identify and hopefully change riders’ high-risk behaviors:

  • A soldier who has a history of undisciplined actions
  • A soldier who has behavioral issues
  • A soldier who considers himself or herself to be indestructible
  • A soldier who resents taking MSF courses and is not willing to participate in a mentorship program — this soldier may need motorcycle safety training and guidance most
  • Inexperienced riders who try to ride machines which are much too powerful for their skill level
  • Motorcyclists who have not ridden in a long time but believe they can ride with the same skills they once had
