Motorcyclists rarely escape injury when an accident occurs. It is crucial never to underestimate the bike’s speed when riding a motorcycle. Additionally, strictly follow traffic laws and the conditions of the road. Do not tailgate a motorcyclist and maintain a safe following distance for other drivers. Give motorcyclists an entire traffic lane when you pass, as they too have equal rights on the road.
