Motorcyclists

Mum and baby

If you’re driving near motorcycles:

  • always leave plenty of room when overtaking
  • check your mirrors - and blind spots - before moving into traffic or changing lanes
  • keep a lookout in slow-moving traffic because motorcycles can move more quickly than cars.
  • Motorcyclists are nearly 30 times more likely to be killed or seriously injured than other drivers.
  • In South Australia, motorcycles make up 3% of registered vehicles but have 16% of fatal crashes.
