Be courteous

* Respect motorcyclists - they are just as entitled to use the road as you are.
o Speed and other aggressive tactics such as tailgating can potentially be more dangerous to the motorcyclist, who has less protection on a smaller, open vehicle.
o Give other drivers space to change lanes, avoid cutting them off and signal your turns and lane changes properly.
Be aware of motorcycles (and other vehicles) around your car

* Check your mirrors frequently so you are aware of the other vehicles around you and how close they are.
o Remember to check your blind spot, especially before changing lanes. A motorcycle is small enough to be entirely hidden within your blind spot.
