  • Any intersection is potentially hazardous, whether it has stoplights, stop signs or
    is unmarked.

  • The majority of multi-vehicle motorcycle crashes generally are caused when other
    drivers simply didn’t see the motorcyclist. Proceed cautiously at intersections and
    yield to pedestrians and other vehicles as appropriate.

  • Be mentally prepared for every ride and assume vehicles may pull out in front of you.
