Always keep a safe distance.• When at an intersection, allow enough space before turning.Motorcyclists:• Always wear a DOT compliant helmet and protective gear like gloves and leather clothing.• Consider adding reflective tape to your clothing to make it easier for other drivers to see you.• Keep your lights on at all times, even during the day.• Don’t assume drivers see you: signal well in advance before changing lanes and watch for turning vehicles.• Although lane splitting is legal, the practice is not encouraged at high speeds in free-flowing traffic, or between large vehicles like big rigs and motor homes.Funding for motorcycle safety enforcement operations are provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 35 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Community News Your email address will not be published.
