Helping drivers see you on your motorcycle

On Behalf of | Aug 5, 2021 | Motorcycle Accidents |

Riding a motorcycle can add a fun sense of adventure to your life. Rather than a simple commute to work, you can feel the wind around you with a full view of the scenery on your drive.

While your motorcycle’s compact size allows you to take it just about anywhere, it can be challenging for other vehicles to see you on the road. When other drivers cannot see you, it can put you and others at risk.

Here’s what you should know about staying visible before getting on your motorcycle.

Light and bright

Black and other dark colors may be trendy, but dark-colored clothing and gear can cause you to blend in with the road and other vehicles. Also, after sunset, dark clothing can make it even more difficult to see you.

When you choose your gear for riding your motorcycle, look for items that have light or bright colors. Apparel that has higher visibility is less likely to result in a looked-but-failed-to-see (LBFTS) crash.

Since your helmet is one of the most visible parts of your gear, consider getting one that is very easy to see. Colors like bright green, yellow and white tend to have the highest degree of visibility.

Pay attention to blind spots

A motorcycle can easily fit into the blind spot of any vehicle, and the larger the car, the bigger the blind spot. As you are riding, be aware of the cars around you and whether they can see you. If you are in a blind spot, make it a point to move to a more visible area as soon as safely possible.

Pay attention to the drivers around you for signs that they cannot see you. A driver that has looked without seeing you is more likely to start to turn or change lanes. If you learn to recognize the signs, you could have the extra seconds you need to maneuver or alter the driver.
