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