When an accident occurs between a motorcycle and a vehicle, the motorcyclist is typically the one who suffers. Although this accident was not the fault of the motorcyclist, there are things every driver can do to ensure everyone’s safety on the roadway.  It is important for motorcyclists and drivers to always be alert while on the road.  If you are a motorcyclist who is driving for leisure, try to pick a day or hours that do not fall into peak rush hour.  Also, often drivers do not see motorcycles.  Motorcyclists can do their part by wearing bright colored clothing and giving themselves plenty of space when riding around motor vehicles.
