Safe driving

Since the weather has been so warm and dry this year, the fair-weather bicyclists and motorcyclists are already out. That means it’s a good time to post a link to the Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s For Car Drivers website, and my own page on Safe driving around bicycles. It is also a good time to recommend a motorcycle driving course. If you haven’t already taken a motorcycle driving class, you should sign up for a class in your area. There are still a number of openings in the Basic Rider Course in Indiana. Even if you never plan on driving a motorcycle, you should still take the Basic Rider Course because it’ll make you a better, more alert, and safer driver. I recommend this course so highly that I think passing it should be a mandatory prerequisite to receiving a learners permit for operating a car.
