And when they hit the road, safety becomes a major issue — not just for the biker, but for everyone on the road.
These days, motorcycle riders are concerned about the increased number of distracted driving on the roads. Bikers already must deal with drivers not seeing them or performing abrupt turns right in front of them. Driving while texting or talking on a cellphone only increases the chances of a motorcycle crash.
If you’re driving around motorcycles, remember to provide them with a full lane of travel, stay at least four clear seconds behind them, pay attention and assume you will see a biker, stay on the alert and double check in every direction before making any turns, particularly left hand turns.
