As Milwaukee motorcycle accident lawyers and riders, we understand that some car, van, and truck drivers get nervous when traveling near motorcycles. We know that most drivers do not intend to cause serious, life-threatening accidents and that our friends and clients would do anything to avoid getting hurt in a bike wreck. Accordingly, we have some advice for all drivers about what to do when traveling near a motorcycle.
What to Do When Sharing the Road With a Motorcyclist
If you find yourself riding near a motorcyclist then it is important not to panic and to:
1. Leave more space between your vehicle and the motorcyclist than you would for other types of vehicles.
2. Anticipate a fall.
3. Stay alert, avoid distractions, and don’t forget about other vehicles around you.
In other words, there is no reason to be nervous when driving near a motorcycle. Instead, you should know what to do and you should keep driving with caution!
