Are motorcycle drivers entitled to the same protections on the road as other motorists?

Yes. Motorcyclists have the same right to use roads as other vehicles, provided they follow traffic rules. Drivers on our roads and highways have a legal duty to watch out for other motorists on the roads, including motorcyclists. Often, other motorists do not use the legal care required to operate their vehicles around motorcycle operators safely. This leads to serious motor vehicle accidents to motorcycle operators and their passengers.
