Motorists

It's for motorists.

Over the past 10 years, the number of motorcycle licensed drivers in North Dakota has increased 25%. That means motorists are sharing the road with more motorcycle riders than ever before.
 
On average in 2019, a motorcycle crash occurred every 2 days in North Dakota.
 
 
Alert driving can help minimize injuries and fatalities from crashes between motor vehicles and motorcycles.
 

Follow these safety tips to share the road:

  1. Look twice for motorcycles. Check mirrors and blind spots when entering an intersection, changing lanes, passing or turning.
  2. Stay back. Motorcycles can stop more quickly than a vehicle. 
  3. Actively watch for motorcycles that may be hidden.
  4. Do not try to share the lane. Motorcycles are entitled to a full lane of traffic.
