How Much Do You Know About Motorcycle Safety?

It's Motorcycle Season ! Warm Weather brings  motorcycles  out of garages and riders hit the road.

The Motorcycle Safety Foundation urges all drivers to give riders some space.

Here are some hints that the driver of a car, should know about motorcyclists:

1. There are a lot more cars and trucks than motorcycles on the road

2. A motorcycle can be easily hidden in a car's blind spots.

3. A motorcycle may seem to be farther away than it actually is.

4. Motorcyclists often slow by downshifting or merely rolling off the throttle

5. Motorcyclists often adjust their position within a lane to be seen more easily

6. Turn signals on a motorcycle are usually not self-canceling

7. Maneuverability is one of a motorcycle's better characteristics.

8. Stopping distance for motorcycles is nearly the same as for cars, but slippery

pavement makes stopping more difficult.

9. When a motorcycle is in motion, see more than the motorcycle. ( See the person

under helmet,who could be your friend, neighbor or relative)

Remember : Give them their fair share of the roadway and don't follow too close!
