Motorcyclists are recognised as vulnerable road users – they don’t have the same protection as a car in a collision.
Drivers should pay extra attention when sharing the road with motorcyclists:
✅ Check for motorcyclists in your mirrors and blind spots before changing lanes
✅ Indicate earlier than you normally would as motorcyclists can accelerate quickly and may be approaching faster than appears
✅ Ensure your high beam light setting is turned off when approaching motorcycles.
