    Bermuda please slow down and do not drive under the influence. I drive from the east every day. It is rare to see a motorcycle rider ride behind a car or another vehicle. They are constantly trying to take over on the inside or outside. They do not care if there is oncoming traffic from the opposite direction or if it is on a curve, they are constantly weaving in and out of traffic putting themselves and others at risk.
    We need more of a police presence on our roads.
