Motorcycles and Bicycles

When you are on the road, be courteous and don't forget to share it with other road users. Motorcyclists and bicyclists face bigger dangers on the roads than car drivers and their passengers. Motorcycles are considered more dangerous types of transportation than other vehicles due to their low visibility. Road conditions that are minor annoyances to you can pose major hazards to motorcyclists. Gravel, potholes or slippery surfaces, and grooved pavement can cause motorcyclists to change speed or direction suddenly.

As bicycles are considered vehicles, bicyclists on public streets have the same rights and responsibilities as automobile drivers: drive on the same direction as other traffic, signal the intentions and just in general follow the same traffic rules. Drivers must be careful when driving close to cyclists and give cyclists at least 3 feet clearance when passing from the rear.
