- Look for motorcyclists. Motorcycles are smaller and therefore can be harder to see. Be sure to give a thorough look in all mirrors and over your shoulder before changing a lane or making a turn.
- Give motorcyclists enough room. It is especially important to keep a safe distance when following a motorcycle. According to several motorcycle training programs, a car following a motorcycle should allow four seconds as motorcycles can stop much more quickly than cars can.
- Use your turn signals. Always signal your intentions even if you think you are alone on the road. Signaling is the law.
- Keep it in the car. Trash such as candy wrappers and cigarette butts should never be tossed out of a window. Road debris of any kind can create a significant hazard to a motorcycle rider causing them to loose control or make a sudden movement that puts everyone on the road in danger.
