Motorcycles are smaller and faster than most vehicles on the road. This makes them difficult to see or hear as they approach from behind you. Be extra conscious and watch out for motorcycle riders approaching in your mirrors. If you see a motorcycle coming, please use the available space in your lane to allow them to pass safely. It is everyone’s responsibility to share the road, be alert, and drive responsibly to ensure that everyone arrives safely.
