BC Almanac discussed motorcycle safety with Bruce Waddington, a safety instructor with the Justice Institute of B.C. After the show listener Bill Romanow sent us the above photo with some advice for riders entering a new season: "Training for all, beginners & advanced riding skills for the experienced rider. Refresher courses every few years. Practice those skills in empty parking lots, especially at the beginning of the riding season. Pay attention all the time, assess everything in front of you & all around you ALL the time. Scan the shoulders of hi-ways (left & right) for dangers (debris, wildlife). ALL THE GEAR ALL THE TIME. Always assume you are invisible to all other traffic & pedestrians. If you don't feel fit(mentally & physically) think twice before heading out. Don't ride like an idiot, it gives the rest of us a bad name."
