As a rider, you can’t be sure that other vehicle operators will see you or yield the right of way. To lessen your chances of a crash occurring, be visible - ride in the best lane position to see and be seen.

Also remember to:

  • Search your path of travel 12 seconds ahead.

  • Identify and separate hazards.

  • Be prepared to act — remain alert and know how to carry out proper crash-avoidance skills.
