    Well, it's obvious. When riding a bike one must be extra careful compared to driving a car. Drivers feel protected by the car, while riders go through more dangers

    I believe riders have better situation awareness than drivers and if such trait is present when one is driving, it would naturally make the person a better driver.

    that and as riders i think you are also more conscious of other riders when driving a car.. normal car drivers who don't ride always heck care the motorcycle, never check blind spots etc.

    agreed. personally i try to be more aware, esp bikes lanesplitting. and actually recognizing which bikes are fast. and i find it better that i took up riding before driving.

    i actually hate driving, knowing the responsibility of operating a huge piece of metal.

    i always tell myself that if i make a mistake, i can potentially hurt or kill alot of ppl. i wish other drivers adopt this mentality.

    That is true.. riders are more cautious and having high awareness of road conditions. Most of car drivers here are bad. Never do proper lookout . On the bend while turning the cars turn swaying ..

    I strongly believe that our road will be so much better if riding practical is made mandatory before a learner starts driving lesson.

    splitting lanes is Russian Roulette but it's a legal grey area. TP and LTA do it, M'sian bikers are more gung ho after queueing for hours to cross checkpoint they "go for it" and split lanes between cars and other riders, daredevils! not knowing that our car drivers are busy on their mobile phones and oblivious to the slicing and icing around them until an accident occurs.
    Everyone must be alert while on the road at all times, especially us bikers!

    every road user will become a better driver/rider with more white ants and govt sponsored CCTV footage at every red light camera junction soon, 300+ or so.so slow down before every red light junction then speed up after that will be the new norm!
