    If I am to be politically correct here we will be not getting any where and stagnation will prevail, more people will get hurt and some will die , all of that can be prevented.

    We must face our deamons.

    Till death do us part.

    We can not blame this all on the conditions of our roads

    It is often said that in order to gain emoloyment in a partiular field you are required to have certain skills and training to which many employers add experiance.

    What is important here is what ever you do in life, all that requies a degree of tallent, experiance and training to which you can add to proficiency, you may even get a better rate with your insurance company.

    Given the number of road accident we see on our roads to day changes need to be made.

    Next question is why ? what are the common denominators that causes accidents two of them are speeding beyound the limits of our experiance and the type of vehicle to which we can always add inattention.

    Taking ones eyee of the road and other road users for a micro second is all it takes, for disaster.

    What is needed here is a comprehensive motorcycle training course like they have in the USA
    which is put on by the ” Motorcycle Safety Foundation” .
    Our police here have a responsibility for road safety !

    I said what can those two State Troopers teach me >>>>>>>> My answer was everything.

    That was the best $200. Which I have ever spent in my entire life.

      Motorcyclists aren’t the only ones needing training.

        On this I am in complete agreement with you .
        I can drive whatever I want but choose to do 90% of my getting about on 2 wheels.
        People who think bikers are the root of all evil need to spend a few months (hell , even a few days) on a bike and then tell me what they think about cars ,trucks , busses and etc.

    This part of the road is definitely a hotspot. And the collisions will continue unless more people start taking care.

    This is what happens when you ride with earphones on a pass vehicles that have pulled over for the emergency truck..

    I witnessed this accident and saw it coming before it actually happened.I thought to my self just by the pink church 50 feet away from the accident. No wonder so many die from road collision, we do a pack of crap! This woman came up next to me on her bike, behind a taxi. She rode side by side to me but on/near the line. Her bike was about 5 inches from the taxi bumper, eventually she overtook the taxi’s and other other taxi in front of it along with two other male riders. They all went around the corner (looked like pack racing) and she happened to be closest to the fire truck and struck it. The other riders were an older male in his late 50′s wearing a beige colored shirt and Adidas black shorts with slippers/sandals. The other rider, a younger male in his late 20′s/early 30′s wearing a black shirt and black long pants with black an white nikes. I ended leaving before the ambulance and police arrived because I was making time.
