Motorcycle riders should straighten out curvy travel lanes to increase sight distance

This month is Motorcycle Safety Awareness month. To commemorate, Street Smarts will periodically publish safety tips for motorcycle riders. Today's tip: When traveling on curvy roads  and there is no traffic, the California Motorcycle Handbook suggests riders straighten out the curve -- and increase their line of sight -- by starting at the outside of a curve and moving toward the inside as he or she takes the turn. As the rider passes the center of the curve, he or she should move back to the exit the curve or set up for the next one.
