How to stay safe during the Lone Star Rally

According to TxDOT, more than 500 motorcycle riders were killed in Texas last year, so here are some precautions for everyone in some of the riskiest driving situations:

Look twice for motorcycles at intersections
TxDOT says a quarter of serious motorcycle crashes are at intersection and happen when a vehicle turns left and likely does not see the oncoming motorcycle. Look twice, not just at intersections but also when you’re changing lanes!

Give motorcycles a full lane
The fact that motorcycles are smaller and harder to see means they definitely need the extra space.

Double check your side windows and mirrors before changing lanes

Small vehicles like motorcycles have a greater chance of getting lost in your blind spot.

Avoid lane splitting
Riders should avoid weaving in and out of traffic. It’s an appealing way to bypass congestion, but it’s also an easy way to collide with a car.
