Motorcycle Highway Safety in Utah

According to the National Safety Council, motorcycles accounted for 14% of every road fatalities in 2017, despite making up only 3% of registered vehicles on roads. 

Here are a few essential motorcycle safety tips for driving on Utah highways:

  • Allow extra room, space, and time for other vehicles to stop when there is traffic
  • Collisions cause a frequent cause of motorcycle and vehicle accidents in intersections. Ensure you check appropriately before making that left turn, especially if the motorcycle has the right of way.
  • Consult a motorcycle attorney to help you become familiar with the lane filtering law. 
  • Note that in Utah, it is illegal for motorcyclists to filter between lanes while on the highway.
  • Always check your blind spots before changing lanes or making any lane changes. Motorcycles may be quick and difficult to spot in the blind spot.
