Georgia Drivers Reminded to Look Out for Motorcycles

June 17, 2020

GEORGIA - Motorcycles carry inherent risks for riders. As a result, motorcyclists face a per-mile risk of being involved in a deadly crash that is 27 times that of people who are traveling in cars, according to VALDOSTATODAY.COM. While motorcyclists can take steps to reduce their risk of being killed in a crash, their safety is largely dependent on other drivers also being responsible.

Motorcycles are smaller than cars, and drivers frequently overlook these individuals. The consequences of a driver’s carelessness or lapse in attention can result in tragic loss of life.

Last year motorcycle deaths in the state increased by eight percent. In 2019, 163 motorcyclists died in crashes in Georgia. 

Some safety tips for motorists include a reminder that even though motorcycles are small, they are entitled to a full lane of traffic. It is important to give these riders space. Drivers who fail to use their signals make riding more dangerous as a motorcyclist cannot see where the person intends to go. At intersections and when changing lanes, drivers should be sure to look at their blind spots. Motorists should never follow a motorcycle too closely as they could be putting the person in danger in the event of an emergency and if the need to come to a quick stop.
