      Sadly more laws will only do so much to protect motorcyclists. You can Google all of this yourselves but the human brain, especially with older drivers, has been conditioned to see a piece of metal 6′ to 8′ feet wide coming down the road and when it is something much smaller bad things can happen.

      Why would anybody choose to drive AT ALL when its a known fact that 8 out of 10 drivers either text or talk on their cellphones while driving? I mean lets all just stay off the streets COMPLETELY, not go anywhere, and stay in plastic bulletproof bubbles and stare at the wall while we wait to die anyway???

        Joske: I already do that. I live in my mom’s basement. I dont work. Mom pays my internet bill. She buys my food, does my laundry and washes my dishes, whenever she comes down the steps to get them. Its not exactly like living in a bubble but it isa pretty safe way to live. I totally agree with your statement. We need more smart thinkers like ourselves bud.
