Protect Motorcyclists by Sharing the Road

Motorcycle accidents can cause serious injury or even death. Often, the person who suffers the most damage in a motorcycle crash is the motorcyclist, who doesn’t have the protection that a motor vehicle affords.

Motor vehicle drivers have a responsibility to share the road with all other vehicles, including motorcycles. Here are some ways you can share the road safely with motorcyclists and help prevent serious motorcycle accidents in Georgia:

  • Never drive, walk, or ride a bike while distracted. Pull over and stop before you have to read a map, make a phone call, or do anything else that might take your attention from the road.
  • Give a motorcyclist a full lane. It’s never safe to try and ride alongside a motorcyclist in the same lane of traffic, even if the road looks wide enough.
  • Leave extra room between the front of your vehicle and the back of a motorcycle. This will allow you to stop in time to avoid hitting the motorcyclist or the bike if the bike suddenly swerves or the rider loses control.
  • Double-check your mirrors and blind spots before changing lanes, as motorcycles may be hard to see. Always signal before changing lanes so that motorcyclists can see what you’re planning and adjust their own speed and position accordingly.
