As the number of motorcycles on the roads increase, so does the amount
of motorcycle accidents. Since motorcycles don’t offer the same
protection as cars do, a motorcycle accident can be more serious and prove
fatal, no matter how minor the accident appears to be.
Since motorcycles share the roadways with other vehicles, it is important
that all motorists take certain precautions to keep each other safe.
First, never operate a motorcycle or any vehicle while distracted. Distracted
driving has been cited as a major factor in fatal wrecks.
If you are driving a car, make sure you realize that motorcycles have the
same rights and privileges as other vehicles do. Treat motorcyclists with
the same respect and caution as you would any other vehicle.
Also, allow for more following distance when you are traveling behind a
motorcycle. It is important to make sure that a motorcyclist has plenty
of time to avoid a road hazard and stop when necessary. Following these
tips could be the difference between life and death.
