About This Item

Share the road with motorcycles – in almost half of all motorcycle collisions the motorist is at fault, not the motorcyclist

  • Motorcycles use a full lane; treat them like other vehicles when driving.
  • A safe following distance is at least two seconds behind the vehicle in front of you. This lets you see around the vehicle ahead and gives you enough distance to stop suddenly.
  • Many motorcycle collisions occur between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m., so take extra caution at these times.
  • Watch for motorcycles at intersections – over one third of motorcycle collisions are intersection related.

    • Be sure that you are safe to proceed before doing so by checking your mirrors and around your car.
    • Slow down as you come to intersection and look carefully for traffic, yield signs, stop signs, traffic lights, cyclists and pedestrians.
    • Be extra cautious when turning left in front of a motorcycle. It’s difficult to judge their speed and their turn signal may be accidentally left on as they don’t automatically shut off.
  • Watch for clues

    • Motorcycle turn signals can be hard to see.
      • Watch for signs, such as shoulder checking or leaning that indicate the rider is going to turn or change lanes.

    Carefully assess an oncoming motorcycle’s speed

    • A motorcycle is more difficult to see than other vehicles and its profile is smaller from most angles.
      • A motorcycle's speed and distance can easily be misjudged by drivers.
      • Make sure you don't pull out in front of, or cut off, a motorcycle.
  • Be courteous

    • Respect motorcyclists - they are just as entitled to use the road as you are.
      • Speed and other aggressive tactics such as tailgating can potentially be more dangerous to the motorcyclist, who has less protection on a smaller, open vehicle.
      • Give other drivers space to change lanes, avoid cutting them off and signal your turns and lane changes properly.
  • Be aware of motorcycles (and other vehicles) around your car

    • Check your mirrors frequently so you are aware of the other vehicles around you and how close they are.
      • Remember to check your blind spot, especially before changing lanes. A motorcycle is small enough to be entirely hidden within your blind spot.

    Was at primo cache today. This was not there.

    If it was indeed paper, it may have gotten thrown out when the cache was rejuvenated a few weeks ago. The cache contents was soaked, rotting, rusting, and was disposed of.

    We found this colourful coin today and will move along soon. M. can attest to the importance of your message as he still has the metal pins in his shoulder because a motorist wasn't paying attention to his motorcycle. Too bad the deer who stood in the road just over the crest of a hill can't read these reminders. Avoiding the deer caused a certain amount of road rash but beat being hit by a car.

    Well it looks like I am the first to start it on its way after being dropped off by the owners.
