What Can People Do to Start Seeing Motorcycles?
Many people are aware of the ìStart Seeing Motorcyclesî bumper sticker. Sadly, many people who display that bumper sticker have lost loved ones or have been impacted by a motorcycle accident. Motor vehicle operators need to take the following steps to ensure motorcyclists are safe on the road.
- Share the road with motorcycles.
- Obey traffic rules. One negligent action can harm someone.
- Allow enough ìcushionî between cars and motorcycles. Cars take longer to stop and a slow reaction time could cause injury to a motorcyclist.
- Watch for motorcycles.
There are many action groups dedicated to inform the public about the important steps people can take to afford motorcyclists the same road rights as other vehicles.
