DISPUTING THE STEREOTYPE
Although you don’t have control over labels and reputations, as a motorcyclist, there are ways for you to avoid being classified as a careless driver. The Texas Department of Public Safety shares these tips for driving a motorcycle safely:
- Keep your distance from other vehicles and give yourself time to react and maneuver.
- Position yourself in the lane so you can be seen at all times and avoid any blind spots.
- Make sure you are fully visible when you pass another vehicle and stay in the center of the lane when you’re being passed.
- Never share a lane or drive alongside another vehicle. Don’t park in between other vehicles either—use your own parking spot.
