When driving, it is important to keep an eye out for motorcyclists. Check all your mirrors and blind spots for motorcycles before merging with traffic or changing lanes, especially at intersections. Also, allow more following distance when behind a motorcycle. This gives them more time to react or stop in case of an emergency. If you are riding a motorcycle, do not underestimate the bike’s speed. Use hand and turn signals when you change lane or turn. To increase visibility, wear brightly colored clothes and reflective tape. Create safer roads and save lives by abiding all traffic laws and observing safety precautions.
