WHY DON’T MOTORISTS SEE MOTORCYCLISTS?

  • Motorists are generally unfamiliar with motorcycles.

  • Motorists tend to look for and see the familiar – other motorists.

  • Motorcycles have a much smaller profile than vehicles, therefore judging speed and distance of an approaching motorcycle is more difficult.

 

WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON SITUATIONS WHERE THESE ACCIDENTS ARE LIKELY TO OCCUR?

  • LEFT TURNS - Over 40% of all motorcycle accidents occur at intersections.

  • CARS BLIND SPOT Motorcyclists are often hidden in a vehicles blind spot or missed in a quick look due to their smaller size

 

VISIBILITY TIPS

  • RUNNING LIGHTS All types of running lights improve visibility. Remember, the front and sides of a motorcycle are the most important – brighten those areas FIRST!

  • REFLECTORS Apply reflective strips to your helmet and motorcycle.

  • USE COLOR Bright and contrasting clothing is much more visible. If you wear dark jackets or clothing, brighten them with fluorescent vests or straps.

  • HEADLIGHTS Use your headlights at all times. Use high beams rather than low beams during the daylight hours.
