Less common tips for avoiding motorcycle accidents

As previous posts have noted, perhaps the most common tips for how a North Carolina driver can avoid a collision with a motorcycle are to keep a safe following distance, about 3 or 4 seconds, and to keep a special eye out for motorcyclists since they are more difficult to see, particularly when they are in a car's blind spots. While an inadvertent failure to yield is a common cause of a bike crash, there are other things about which drivers in the Raleigh area need to know in order to stay safe around motorcycles.
