Motorcycle Insurance in Texas
Motorcycle owners who live in Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex share highways with a variety of other motorists. The one thing they all have in common is the fact that they must all carry at least the minimum amount of insurance the state of Texas requires. When you ride a motorcycle, it is essential that you carry the right type of coverage and that you fully understand the rules of the road. Having an insurance agent from Pounds Insurance on your side to answer your questions will ensure you always have the coverage you need.
Take a Motorcycle Safety Course
Taking a motorcycle safety course will help keep you fresh and up to date on any changes that may have taken place since you received your endorsement. It's important that you stay on top of things when it comes to safety on our roadways. Talk to motorcycle rights organizations to learn about new legislation that may be in the works to benefit motorcyclists.
Always Wear a Helmet
Always wear your motorcycle helmet! While Texas currently only has a partial helmet law in place (21- years and older plus a state-approved motorcycle safety course), wearing your helmet at all times is the best way to prevent a traumatic injury. When purchasing your helmet, you need to double-check to ensure that it is DOT-approved. If so, there will be a special sticker at the back of the helmet saying DOT-Approved.
Always Be Aware!
Whenever you take to the road on your motorcycle, always be aware of your surroundings. Watch for bad spots in the road and keep an eye on other drivers. Be watchful of them, because they may not be watchful of you. It's also important that you keep your motorcycle in good working order at all times.
The agents at Pounds Insurance encourage all motorcycle owners to have their existing motorcycle insurance policies reviewed on a regular basis. If you have questions, all you have to do is call and ask!
