Unwritten Road Rules of Motorcycles

While motorists are all expected to follow standard traffic rules and regulations, such as following traffic signs, obeying traffic lights, driving while intoxicated, texting and driving, to name a few, there are many unwritten dos and don'ts of the road that drivers are expected to be familiar with such as practicing road courtesy, slowing down when approaching intersections and pedestrian crossings even if there is no one crossing. These are standard road safety precautions drivers and even non-drivers must know.
