Crashes between motorcycles and cars can result in serious injury and death. But these crashes can easily be avoided. There are steps drivers of both types of vehicles can take to avoid these. • Motorcycles accelerate and stop much faster than cars and trucks. If you’re driving a vehicle, give yourself more stopping distance when following a motorcycle. • Most motorcycle accidents happen because the motorcycle wasn’t seen. Sometimes it’s hard to see a motorcyclist at first, so take a second look when changing lanes or turning. There might be a motorcycle hidden behind the other vehicles. It only takes a few seconds, but it can save a life. If you’re the one riding a motorcycle, ride in a safe and predictable manner. And make sure you’re visible to other drivers on the road.
