Motorcyclists rarely escape injury when an accident occurs. If you are riding a motorcycle, do not underestimate the bike’s speed. Additionally, strictly follow traffic laws and the conditions of the road. For other drivers, do not tailgate a motorcycle. Maintain a safe following distance. Give motorcycles a full traffic lane when you pass. Remember that they too have equal rights on the road.
