Motorists often overlook a motorcycle – you should expect that.
The classic: left-turners cross the lane. A danger that can arise in and out of town. What now? Braking and thus alleviating the possibly unavoidable impact? Or evade with a courageous steering impulse? Whoever grabs half-heartedly will hardly make it. Braking is recommended up to a local speed of 50, 60, and from 70 upwards, evasive action becomes more and more sensible, because the evasive path only increases linearly. Such maneuvers can be practiced in safety training. But: There is no silver bullet for this decision.
In this case, the following also applies: do not overtake. As soon as there is an opportunity to turn left, the motorcyclist must expect a vehicle to pull out of the column and suddenly change direction, possibly without blinking. If you don’t want to wait and try to overtake, you run a high risk of accidents. In the event of a crash, it is of secondary importance whether the driver has blinked or not. Even if the motorcyclist is right – he usually has to face the worse consequences.
Even if the throttle is itching, motorcyclists should not overtake in principle in the area of intersections and junctions. Otherwise dangerous situations like the one in the graphic above can arise. The driver turning in from the hidden side street almost always directs his gaze to the left. If no vehicle comes from there, he turns – and then meets the oncoming motorcyclist exactly. An impact can then hardly be avoided.
Particular caution is required when vehicles are turning: The following are three common causes of a crash with another vehicle.
Game passes have been frequent lately where this sign is located. So it is wise to expect roe deer, deer or even wild boar jumping onto the street. That happens often at dusk, but also at noon at noon.
In left-hand bends, the lane can get really narrow. Because if we drove too far to the left we would come into oncoming traffic, and on the right edge of the road there were leaves, gravel and other rubbish. You should stay away from this as much as possible in an inclined position.
Wanderer parking lots let drivers suddenly brake and turn without blinking. Or they suddenly roll onto the street, absorbed in the conversation. Or they get out and cross the street on foot. You should expect that, so slow down and be ready to brake.
Slowly twitching tractors are usually easy to overtake. But never near junctions, fields or meadows into which he could simply turn left. Because a blinker that is not switched on can also be a broken blinker.
Not only in the city you always have to expect that others are unpredictable. Therefore: be ready to brake at any time.

Expect the mistakes of others
Motorcycles ride well and safely
The most well-behaved cannot ride a motorcycle in peace if another road user is inattentive. Those who trust their fellow human beings to make mistakes in road traffic and are prepared in thought drive safer.
Werner &# 34; mini&# 34; Cook,
Many encounters with cars only become dangerous because the drivers simply overlook us. Because we disappear behind a mast or the A-pillar of the car, for example. Or because other road users misjudge our speed.
Sometimes cars suddenly drive out of a driveway, change lanes or turn, suddenly, but hopefully not surprising to us. Because we should always expect to be overlooked. Making yourself clearly visible and at the same time always expecting that this is not enough can have an immensely life-prolonging effect.
The following images and graphics show situations with potential for conflict. They can often be mitigated a little by anticipating driving, healthy skepticism and willingness to brake.
Oncoming traffic and left turns
Whenever anyone wants to turn, special care is required.
And no matter how good the view is: In principle, motorcyclists should not overtake in the area of intersections and junctions. Otherwise dangerous situations like the one in the graphic above can arise. The driver turning from the hidden side street almost always looks to the left. If no vehicle comes from there, he turns – and out of nowhere, the overtaking motorcyclist has oncoming traffic. An impact can then hardly be avoided. In addition, a left turn could pull out in front of you.
The same applies here: stay behind. As soon as an opportunity to turn left comes into view, the motorcyclist has to expect that a vehicle will pull out of the column and, possibly without blinking, suddenly drive in front of the machine. If you don’t want to wait and try to overtake, you run a high risk of accidents. In the event of a crash, it is of secondary importance whether the driver has blinked or not. Even if the motorcyclist is right – he usually has to bear the worse consequences for life and limb.
Classically overlooked: left-turners cross the lane. A danger that can arise in and out of town. What now? Braking and thus alleviating the possibly unavoidable impact? Or evade with a courageous steering impulse? Whoever grabs half-heartedly will hardly make it. Therefore, braking should always be in the foreground. And whoever evades it at the same time has a clear advantage. Such maneuvers can be practiced in safety training. But: There is no silver bullet for this decision.
The oncoming traffic too far outside, we ourselves way too far inside, everyone was just thinking of themselves again. Fortunately, the picture is a montage … Nevertheless: it is not uncommon for our colleagues to come dangerously close to us on winding country and mountain roads.
Parking spaces for hikers
Parking lot for hikers
Hiking parking spaces are to motorists what bikers’ get-togethers are to motorcyclists: a reason to slow down, turn in, leave the vehicle, walk across the street. And forget about the rest of the traffic. So we take care of them and take it slow.
This sign indicates a confusing confluence. It’s hard to see, but neither are we for those who want to get out of there. So off the gas, hand on the brake, finger on the horn and past in a careful position. Don’t forget to breathe.
Tractors & Co.
You can usually easily get past tractors on a bike. Nevertheless, the greatest caution is required here, because you could suddenly turn into a field, forest or meadow, even if we do not perceive the path as such. And neither does the turn signal, if it flashes.
The sign “Deer crossing” is usually located where there are frequent accidents with wildlife. So it seems advisable to expect roe deer, deer or wild boar jumping onto the street. This not only happens at dusk, but also at noon at noon.
