Motorcyclists rarely escape injuries in the event of a crash, which is why it is important to never underestimate the bike’s speed. Strictly following traffic laws and the conditions of the road also help to prevent dangerous accidents. For other drivers, do not tailgate a motorcyclist. Keep a safe following distance and give motorcyclists a full traffic lane when you pass.
