Motorcyclists are highly mobile but hard to see and therefore more vulnerable. It's important to:

  • check your mirrors and blind spots before turning
  • look behind you before opening your door or changing lanes
  • be aware that most motorcycle indicators don’t automatically turn off – don’t be fooled by an indicator that stays on
  • acknowledge motorcyclists always need a whole lane. A motorcyclist may suddenly swerve or slow to avoid road hazards.
