2 of 10 Things Drivers Should Know About Motorcycles from American Iron Magazine

As riders ourselves, we at American Iron Magazine are concerned about the safety of motorcycle riders.

So we are sharing the 10 top things car and truck drivers should know about motorcycles and ask that you share them on social media.

Tip 1: Over half of all fatal motorcycle crashes involve another vehicle. Most of the time, the car or truck driver, not the motorcyclist, is at fault. There are a lot more cars and trucks than motorcycles on the road, and some drivers don’t “recognize” a motorcycle – they ignore it (usually unintentionally). 

Tip 2: Because of its narrow profile, a motorcycle can be easily hidden in a car’s blind spots (door/roof pillars) or masked by objects or backgrounds outside a car (bushes, fences, bridges, etc). Take an extra monent to look for motorcycles, whether you’re  changing lanes or turning at intersections.

American Iron Magazine is the best selling motorcycle magazine on the newsstand. You can subscribe to American Iron Magazine in PRINT or in DIGITAL delivery by clicking on the links.
