Accidents involving motorcycles can be very dangerous. Due to the high rate of speed and low weight of motorcycles, accidents involving motorcycles can lead to serious property damage and bodily injury. Motorcyclists should always wear proper safety equipment just in case situations like these arise.
As a driver, it is important to safely share the road with motorcyclists by giving them a proper safety distance, always checking blind spots before changing lanes, and properly using turn signals before engaging in lane changes.
