    @JB, dont be so hard on yourself…your not stupid as you refer to people concerning a tragedy.
    @Mick…well said
    As a motorcycle rider I enhance the watch out for motorcycle rhetoric.
    I always watch out for cars
    No one is perfect.
    The one is “stupid” comment concerning anything is a failed attempt to articulate the vords so smear people right.
    People make mistakes.
    That JB , mistakes dont automatically make a person stupid.
    Just author’s of writings who cant try to demean another human for a mistake.
    Try to trash a tragedy somewhere else.

    Look twice for cars. Helmets are a must! Riding a motorcycle is high-risk. Until they remove A-pillars from automobiles, this will continue to happen.

    Other states have stricter laws about causing crashes resulting in death or injury.
    Until Florida steps up to the plate this will never stop.
    Distracted driving needs to be on par with a DUI.
    The results are the same so the penalty should be too.
    No reason to give sober people a pass.

    Luckily I learned as a teen to watch out for motorcycles. I had stopped at stop sign looking both ways and proceeded to make my turn when a motorcycle came around the curve , I stopped halfway in the street and since then I look for them . When we are taught to drive this should be taught as well

    If you “accidentally” kill someone by negligently handling a firearm you face criminal charges. The same standard should apply to operating a motor vehicle!

    Crashes happen. Unfortunately motorcycles are harder to see and lack a frame protecting its occupants. Every rider knows the risks.

    Another motorcyclist dead due to someone’s stupidity. What a shame. It’s why I stopped riding motorcycles years ago.

    Praying for the family of the motorcyclist, and the driver. Praying also for the woman that hit him. This is so sad in every way. I hope people on here have compassion for both parties.
