Road Hazards vs. Other Drivers

by Staff Blogger | April 27th, 2017

Motorcyclists’ lives depend on how quickly they can respond to threats on the road. No matter what type of road they find themselves on, they must watch for potholes, debris, and other hazards. Fortunately, road hazards lack the ability to think. You’ll never see a pothole decide at the last second to move a few feet to the left, nor will gravel jump from the shoulder into the middle of the road on a whim. That’s why road hazards are for the most part manageable. Other drivers are a different story.
