Safety tips for motorcyclists

Motorcycle riders in California should know about the common causes of motorcycle accidents. The behavior of other vehicle drivers is sometimes a cause.

The latter can be avoided by staying aware of a vehicle's blind spots and situations that might cause an abrupt lane change.
