When driving, it is crucial to always be careful of motorcyclists, scooter riders, pedestrians, and bicyclists on the road. Cyclist accidents are extremely dangerous because of their lack of protection and lightweight bodies. If you are unable to share the road properly with cyclists, use a ride share service instead.
