Motorcycle Driving Safety Tips

The practices of some riders are offensive to other motorists (e.g., weaving in and out of stalled traffic, riding on shoulders). Being inconsiderate of other motorists creates a negative image for all riders, and can cause crashes. Be especially alert at intersections because approximately 70 percent of motorcycle-vehicle collisions occur there!
