It is important to observe proper caution when riding a motorcycle. Do not underestimate the bike’s speed. When turning or changing lanes, use hand and turn signals to give other drivers enough time to slow down and prepare for you to get over. To increase visibility, wear brightly colored clothes and reflective tape. For other drivers, 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. Create safer roads and save lives by abiding all traffic laws and observing safety precautions.
