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