About This Item
Look for motorcycles!
The majority of car-motorcycle crashes are the driver’s
fault. Most often, the driver either doesn’t see the
motorcycle or misjudges its speed and/or distance and
pulls out in front of it. When entering the highway and
at intersections, especially when turning left, always
double-check the cross traffic. Look for motorcycles,
then look again.
Where are craches likely?
Left turns and
Intersections are the most likely places for car or
Motorcycle crashes to occur. Because of its smaller
size, drivers often don’t see or misjudge the distance
and speed of a motorcycle. Taking a second look for
motorcycles at intersections lessens the chance of
pulling out in front of them.
Motorcycles are narrow and can wind up in your blind
spot in a hurry. To improve safety for everyone, be aware
of your surroundings—and all vehicles around you. Make
a visual check for motorcycles in your rear-view mirror
and check your blind spot before changing lanes.
Hazardous road and weather conditions
Be extra careful sharing the road with motorcycles.
Small objects in the road can force a motorcycle to
take evasive action—slowing down or changing lanes
to avoid potholes, wet leaves, fallen objects or railroad
tracks. Don’t tailgate—give motorcycles a four-second
Share the road
Sharing the road doesn’t just mean driving on it together.
It means giving others their fair share of it. A motorcycle
takes up less space in the lane but needs more room to
maneuver safely. Allow the motorcyclist a full lane width.
What can I do?
Help save a life by adopting a few defensive driving
behaviors to improve your awareness of motorcycles.
1. Look for motorcycles…then look again. Look
twice at intersections, especially when turning left.
2. Respect motorcyclists’ rights. Motorcycles have
all the privileges of any vehicle on the road. Give
motorcycles a full lane.
3. Anticipate a motorcyclist’s maneuvers.
Motorcyclists may change lane positions in
response to road conditions, weather or other
factors. Anticipate evasive actions.
4. Allow plenty of following distance. Allow
motorcycles a four-second following distance and
room to respond to conditions on the road.
5. Check your blind spot. Make a visual check for
motorcycles in your rear-view mirror and check your
blind spot before changing lanes.
