THREE-SECOND MOTORCYCLE SAFETY ZONE

What’s a quick and easy way to buffer your long-term motorcycle enjoyment with an increased safety zone?

Count to three slowly; as in three seconds.

That’s the amount of time that should be separating you and the vehicle in front of you.

You can mark the time by noting the vehicle in front of you as it passes a stationary object, such as a speed-limit sign.  When the car passes the object, start counting. 

It should be at least three seconds before you pass the same object.

Obviously, the faster you are going, the more physical distance that should exist between you and the vehicle in front of you.  The three-second rule helps you to keep an appropriate buffer zone in front of you and should give you enough time to react in case something unfriendly occurs (such as the vehicle suddenly braking because of something in the road that you cannot yet see).

Next time you are on the road, regardless of whether you are going fast or slow, check the distance that you normally keep between you and the motorist in front of you by counting off the seconds.  You may be surprised to find that you aren’t giving yourself enough of a buffer….

Ride safely!
