It is important to always check for motorcycles while driving. Due to their size and speed, motorcyclists are easy to miss, especially at night or during heavy traffic activity.
Check your blind spots twice before changing lanes, and never try to cut off a motorcycle. Also, maneuvering around a speeding bike can easily cause an accident. Keep your eyes on the road and avoid distractions.
