    North Shore Road is often a known raceway for motorbikes. I lost count of how many times a motorbike roared past me while I was bicycling. Thought about using a GoPro knockoff video camera to gather evidence but why is that my job? Then I have to testify in court as a witness to verify what was videoed. No point in reporting the speedsters because you get tired of the paperwork and being questioned by the police who never seem to be around on North Shore Road. Perhaps someone could open up a doughnut shop or roadside stand that would draw the BPS to be around.

    What kind of person hits an old person, or any person and leaves them in the street? DISGUSTING BEHAVIOUR. ….Oh wait I know….the person who likely has no lisence no insurance was speeding and under the influence is carrying a weapon and has illegal substances on their person. Maybe throw a few warrants in there too. There are too many selfish unkind lawbreaking uncaring people out there. It’s the new normal. It sickens and saddens me.
