Every year, motorcyclists from Tennessee and across the country participate in an event called "Ride to the Wall." The event aims to honor fallen men and women from the Vietnam War and other wars as well as bringing awareness that many Americans are still listed as prisoners of war or missing in action. Sadly, one of the convoys headed to Washington experienced motorcycle accidents in Tennessee after a collision occurred with a tractor-trailer.
Riding a motorcycle can be dangerous. Often, the most danger a rider can face on the road is another vehicle. A collision with a larger vehicle can result in a motorcycle operator losing control of his or her bike and result in serious injuries, or worse. Recently, Tennessee authorities were called to separate fatal motorcycle accidents in one night.
Any Tennessean will proudly boast about our state’s many virtues, including beautiful scenery, great music and friendly people. It’s no wonder that our residents are so proud of where they live.
For some, riding a motorcycle is just plain fun. They enjoy the feeling of the open air on their faces and the freedom of it. But driving a motorcycle can also be very dangerous and accidents happen every day.
No matter where you’re going, it’s always a good idea to be a wise walker.
In busy, congested cities such as Nashville, there are an incredible number of people, signs, moving objects and more for drivers to track as they make their ways on our streets. The last things they should be keeping an eye on is their phones.
Nashville is known for its beautiful weather and active population, which includes plenty of bicyclists, joggers and pedestrians.
