To lessen the chances of a crash occurring, you should make yourself visible, communicate your intentions to others, maintain adequate space cushions, search your path of travel at least 12 seconds ahead, identify and separate hazards, and be prepared to react to changing conditions.
A rider should always maintain a cushion of space appropriate for conditions. Motorcycles need as much room to stop as other vehicles.

Motorcyclists should flash their brake lights when slowing in any location where other drivers may not expect them to slow down.
If your front wheel locks while you are making a quick stop, release the front brake immediately and then re-apply it firmly. Use both the front and rear brakes if you need to stop quickly.
