The NSW Government developed the Ride to Live campaign to get to the heart of what keeps motorcyclists safe: making good decisions. The campaign gives riders useful information about the risks they face on the road and how they can best manage them.
The Ride to Live website features hazard tests to check your responses to the different risks you face as riders. There are also tips on a wide range of topics, such as braking distances and selecting the right helmet and protective gear. Interactive maps show some of the state’s most popular riding routes with live traffic updates, an explanation of where recent crashes have occurred, and where to find rest stops, petrol, food and accommodation.
Motorcycle riders are more exposed and risk serious injuries if they are in a crash. Scanning, setting up and buffering are three essential elements for safe motorcycle riding.
Lane Filtering Laws
Motorcycle lane filtering laws now apply in NSW. Lane filtering is when a motorcycle rider moves alongside vehicles that have either stopped or are moving slowly (less than 30 km/h). Read more detailed information on New Laws for Lane Filtering.
