Gates

You should maintain gates around you and keep your defensive eye alert for all other traffic:

  • ahead of you
  • behind you
  • approaching you
  • approaching from the side
  • you are passing
  • passing you
Gates

Monitor your gates regularly. (See the Saskatchewan Driver’s Handbook for an explanation of gates.)

Distance in front

Good riders keep at least a three-second distance between themselves and the vehicle ahead. This increases their ability to see and be seen in traffic and gives them plenty of time to react if something happens ahead. It also gives a better view of things in the road, such as potholes, slippery spots, chunks of tire tread or debris. If conditions are less than ideal, such as in bad weather, maintain an even greater following distance.
