On Sunday, July 12th, the man killed in a motorcycle accident was identified as Dustin Leston, 20. The victim’s life ended on Saturday, July 11th, after he crashed his bike on Highway 168 in the Fresno area of California.

Motorcycle accidents are either solo crashes or involve a car, making it an auto-motorcycle collision. Before heading out on a motorcycle, there are several things riders should consider, like taking a safety course, wearing protective clothing, and helmet compliant with the United States Department of Transportation.

The helmet must be fastened tightly, allow air passage, and cover the face and eyes. The apparel should include an ankle-length boot, opened fingered gloves, long pants, and long-sleeved jacket made of leather or reflective material.

The CHP working with the Cal-DMV created a motorcyclist safety program consisting of a 15-hour classroom and on-cycle Basic Rider Course (BRC). The latter is mandatory for people below the age of 21, but persons above that age who want to get licensed for the first time must take the course.

A person who completes the BRC gets issued a Certificate of Completion of Motorcycle Training. A rider with the certificate can waive the motorcycle skills test at the DMV, and he or she must submit it to the agency within 12 months of the date of issuance.
