Practicing defensive driving habits can help to prevent dangerous accidents such as these. Always check your blind spots twice before changing lanes, and never try to cut off a motorcycle. Maneuvering around a speeding bike can easily cause an accident. Keep your eyes on the road and avoid distractions.
