10 Tips Every Driver Should Know About Sharing the Road with Motorcycles

1. Always check your blind spots! – Motorcycles are smaller than other vehicles and can be even more difficult to spot while merging or changing lanes. The shape of motorcycle and rider is also more likely to blend into the images you see in your rear-view and side-view mirrors than that of a large automobile.

2. Be extra cautious when passing. – Make sure to signal your intention to pass a slower motorcyclist by using your left turn signal. Always make sure you are several car lengths ahead of the motorcycle before returning to your lane.

3. Remember that motorcycles react more quickly than cars. – Make sure that you maintain an adequate following distance behind motorcycles.

4. Weather warning. – Weather warning: bad weather has more drastic affects on motorcycle riders than it does on automobile drivers. Rain and winter weather in particular can make it almost impossible for motorcyclist to continue to travel.

5. Night-riding can be treacherous for motorcyclists. – Help riders stay safe after dark by increasing your following distance, ensuring that your high-beams are turned off when you notice an approaching motorcycle, and refraining from passing.
