ROAD POSITIONING... continued

Sight

A good road position can allow you to see further and get more information about what is happening up ahead.

Generally the right side of the lane provides good vision up the road, to the sides and also behind you.

However the right side of the lane is a dangerous position to be in if there is oncoming traffic.

Try to choose a road position that provides good vision without compromising your buffer from hazards.

This is particularly true when following large vehicles or when taking left bends. by actively managing space, surface and sight a rider can significantly reduce the risk of crashing.


Maintain a buffer from hazards and slow down if vision is limited.
