What Car and Truck Drivers May Not Know About Motorcycles


  • A motorcycle may look farther away that it really is.  Motorcycles are smaller than cars and trucks, so expect the motorcycle to be closer to your car or truck than it looks.
  • Always be on the look for a motorcycle.  Again, motorcycles are smaller than cars and trucks and sometimes they can be difficult to see.  Keep an eye out for them!
  • Driving a motorcycle is a lot different than driving a car or a truck!  Bikers will often slow down by downshifting and if so, they can slow down without activating their brake light.  Keep this in mind and always keep a safe distance behind because you may not be able to tell that they are slowing down.
  • Motorcycle turn signals don’t turn off automatically after a turn like the ones in your car or truck!  The motorcyclist may have forgotten to turn off their turn signal, so don’t assume they are getting ready to make a turn.
  • With warmer weather approaching, more and more bikers are going to be on the road.  Remember that the bike you see on the road in front of you or at the intersection isn’t a bike, it is a person!  Keep an eye out for bikes, share the road and enjoy the beautiful spring and summer weather that is headed our way.
