Recently, I’ve seen billboards reminding drivers to watch out for motorcyclists on the road. Unfortunately, the motorcyclist death-rate has risen over the past few years. I’ve seen tips for being a safer motorcyclist which include wearing a helmet and other safety gear such as gloves, joe rocket gloves for example. Other tips include driving defensively, turning on headlights, and wearing brightly colored clothing. One tip even suggested not driving in the very center of the lane, my guess is because they would be in the blind spot of another driver. Another tip that is good for all drivers everywhere is to avoid distractions!
