May is Motorcyclist Awareness Month. With warmer weather, more motorcyclists will be on the road. This means surrounding drivers should increase awareness of their surroundings to help prevent accidents.
To help keep motorcyclists safe on the road while you’re driving your vehicle, follow these safety tips:
- Check lanes twice before changing. Double-check to be sure you didn’t miss a motorcyclist who may have been in your blind spot.
- Be aware. Pay extra attention while driving at night. Motorcycles are smaller and may not be as easy to see as a car.
- Keep a safe distance. When driving behind motorcycles, especially, ensure you have enough space to stop in the event there’s an accident or problem ahead on the road.
- Drive defensively. Exercising an abundance of caution can help prevent accidents and account for other driver’s actions.
