Motorcyclists rarely escape injuries in the event of a crash. That is why it is important to never underestimate the bike’s speed when you’re riding a motorcycle. Strictly following traffic laws and the conditions of the road also prevent accidents. For other drivers, do not tailgate a motorcyclist. Keep a safe following distance and give motorcyclists a full traffic lane when you pass.
