Making yourself and your motorbike as visible as possible

You must always ride with your headlight on dip during the day.

You can wear high visibility clothing - either clothing with reflective panels in, or a reflective vest or jacket over your motorcycle jacket.

Use your horn to warn drivers who may not have seen you.

Adjust your position in the road to anticipate where other vehicles' blind spots are, and avoid them.

If possible, avoid riding when it's poor visibility unless absolutely necessary. This includes fog, heavy rain and night. At night your single headlight is more difficult to judge than the dual headlights of a car, so other road users find it difficult to tell how fast you are moving and how far away you are.

Certain types of weather make it more likely that car windows and your visor will fog up and that reduces your visibility and the visibility of you that other road users have.
