[ARCHIVED] Bike Week Safety

The Daytona Beach Fire Department will be participating in the “Look Twice. Save a Life.” campaign during the week of March 6th – 15th. Below you will find some tips that may be helpful while navigating the City during these busy times. Sharing the roads with thousands of bikers requires special attention so Look Twice. Save a Life: 1. Double-check traffic at intersections before you turn or pull out. 2. Always check your blind spots before changing lanes. 3. Treat motorcyclists with the same respect you give to other motorists. 4. Leave at least a four-second distance between your car and a motorcycle in front of you. (Note when a motorcycle passes a point in the road. If your vehicle passes the same point in less than four seconds, you’re following too closely). 5. When passing a motorcycle, give a full lane to the motorcycle. Do not share lanes! 6. Keep a watchful eye at all times. Individual motorcycles may blend into a larger group and may be closer than you think. 7. Stay focused on your driving. Avoid distractions such as talking on your cell phone, texting, eating, or changing radio stations. 8. Remember that failing to yield right-of-way can result in the death of a motorcyclist. Be safe and have a safe Bike Week.
