Imagine driving to work when someone suddenly rear-ends you while you coming to a stop at a traffic light. The other driver obviously was not paying attention to what was happening in front of him.

Was he too busy texting to take the time to drive?
Imagine riding down the road, the wind in your hair, the sun shining bright, and the wide expanse of freedom stretching into the horizon. This is exactly what puts you in a unique position. Unfortunately, it also exposes you to dangers that people driving cars do not experience. For example, there is no protective barrier separating you from the road other than your riding leathers. In addition, drivers may not only have difficulty seeing you, they might also have problems anticipating your actions.
