  • You must make sure that you are able to see the drivers of other vehicles by your mirrors or by eye contact and only than you can think that you are also being watched by other drivers.
  • You should always maintain a big distance around you so that other vehicles are in a little bit distance of your vehicle so that you don’t end up in trouble.
  • Try never passing the Trucks, because trucks are larger than the motorcycle so overtaking trucks can be dangerous for you.
  • If you are riding with your friends or in a group than you must maintain distance from other vehicles. Keep enough space for yourselves.
  • Try not to ride a bike of black color because black colors easily get mixed by its surrounding and thus it gets less visible for other riders. So you must ride some bright color bike such as white, yellow or red.
