Motorcycle Safety

Motorists can help to make the road safer for motorcyclists.  

  • Provide motorcyclists with adequate room to maneuver. 
  • Leave at least a 3-4 second following distance. 
  • Allow extra maneuvering room in areas with potholes, pavement transitions and railroad crossings. 
  • Never try to share a lane with a motorcycle. 
  • If a motorcycle is nearby, check your mirrors carefully before changing lanes. 
  • Slow your decision-making process down at intersections. Proceed with caution and look twice for motorcycles. 
  • Stay alert and remember to keep your hands, eyes, and mind on the road ahead. 
  • Wear a seatbelt.
