Loss of control
The two main reasons for loss of control collisions are shunts and failure to take account of road surface conditions.
These are usually due to riding too close to the vehicle in front, or the vehicle behind you being too close.
To protect yourself:
- leave plenty of room between you and the vehicle in front
- make sure you can always stop safely on your side of the road in the distance you can see to be clear
- if the vehicle behind is too close, try to give yourself more room in front.
