    Too many people on bikes taking unnecessary chances. Assuming this was the rider’s fault, why must bike riders squeeze between cars (third lane riders)? Is it really worth your safety and life? Somebody once told me “it’s a fun game until you hit the ground”… I’m hoping the rider is not seriously injured, but also hoping that risky bike riders can learn from this sad news…

    Five benefits to driving/riding with care:

    1. Less loss of life on the road = less grieving by family/friends
    2. Less vehicle damage
    3. Less insurance costs
    4. Less court fines
    5. Less traffic jams!!!
