Since there seems to be so many accidents where the motorcyclist is hit by a car turning left in front of them...what can we motorcyclists do to help prevent accidents and protect ourselves?
I watched a rider, and now do this myself. As he approached a situation like this he made a point of tacking back and forth so that he wasn't just a small, approaching figure. He made himself bigger and more obvious. During the day I ride with my high beams on and when I see a car turning left in front of me I sway back and forth and try to aim myself directly at the car. I do a peripheral also of the right side but my focus stays primarily on the left turning car.
