    headlight that is visible up to 500 feet

Emergency Vehicles
If an emergency vehicle is approaching what
should vehicles do? Move to the Right for Sirens
and Lights! If there is heavy traffic you should
move in the direction other drivers are moving

11

12
What do you predict this video is about and why?
13
Confirm your predictions
  • Were you on track with your predictions?
  • What part(s) in the video supported your
    predictions?
  • Write a one sentence summary of the video

14
MotorcyclesWhat can we as drivers do to
protect them?
  • In your blind spot
  • Tailgating Motorcyclists
  • Size of the motorcycle
  • Traveling in Groups
  • Where should we look for them?

15
Predict a motorcycle drivers actions
  • Because they maneuver better, they will move
    quickly into an open space you may be planning on
    occupying
  • Give them as much space as you can
  • Do not tailgate
  • Approaching too fast and too close can startle
    the biker and cause them to lose control

16
Understanding Motorcyclists and Motorcycles
What makes them different than cars?
  • Drivers may be inexperienced
  • They may try to dart in and out of traffic
  • Motorcycles can be hard to control in certain
    weather or road conditions- when is rain the most
    dangerous?

17
How can motorcyclists protect themselves?
  • Receive proper training and instruction
  • Wear protective equipment, such as
  • helmet
  • eye-wear
  • heavy shoes, boots
  • pants
  • gloves
  • Make themselves visible in their lane- how can
    they do this?
  • Drive in lane position 2- avoid oil in middle of
    lane
  • Do not ride between lanes
  • Wear reflective tape on jacket or helmet

18
SAFE OR UNSAFE?
CORRECT OR INCORRECT?
  • High amount of injuries and death to
    motorcyclists
  • Increasing your following distance when following
    a large truck provides more visibility
  • A helmet restricts a motorcyclists vision
  • When riding in groups motorcyclists should always
    be in a single file line
  • Riding in the wheel tracks of the vehicle ahead
    of you
  • Applying too much front brake
  • Increase following distance
  • riding on a lane line
  • crossing RR tracks at a right angle
  • passing in an intersection
  • keeping headlights on
