Sharing the Road: Motorcycles, Mopeds and Bicycles

Nevada Insurance Enrollment Explains Essential Safety Tips for Sharing the Road with Motorcycles, Mopeds and Bicycles
LAS VEGAS - April 29, 2024 - PRLog -- Motorcycles, mopeds and bicycles may account for a relatively small percentage of vehicles on the road, but they are consistently overrepresented in fatal traffic accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, per vehicle miles traveled, those operating motorcycles are 29 times more likely to die in a crash than those riding in passenger cars.

Weather conditions, user error or impairment and being unable to predict what another driver will do can all contribute to traffic accidents and fatalities. When it comes to sharing the road, it is important to take special precautions to keep everyone safe.

How to Share the Road


-Motorcycles have the right to use the entire traffic lane, and two motorcycles may share a lane.
-Because they are smaller, motorcycles may appear to be farther away than they are and it can be difficult to judge how fast they are traveling. When coming up behind a motorcycle, slow down sooner than you would for a larger vehicle.
-Bad weather and slippery or uneven surfaces pose a big danger to motorcycles. When sharing the road, be mindful of conditions and give plenty of distance.


-Like motorcycles, mopeds are allowed to use the entire lane.
-Mopeds are required to use the extreme right-hand lane of a multilane road unless they are making a left turn or if they are otherwise directed by traffic signs or police officers.
-Mopeds typically have a max speed of 30-55 miles per hour. In some cases, this may be slower than the flow of traffic. When coming up on a moped, maintain extra distance.
