You would notice the stupidity even more if you drove a motorcycle.
*Gasp* You know what though?! I have seen two of the most INSANE
motorcyle riders *ever* in the past month!
I have nothing but the utmost respect for people on motorcycles, my husband used to have several, and had an accident on one once. It was his fault,
he actually hit the back of a car.
As well, so did all 3 of my brothers, but, I digress.
These two guys on these bikes! One of them was on a a highway two lanes each way divided by a median. He was in fairly heavy traffic and in a hurry, I
presume. He began weaving in and out between cars, dangerously close, and having to brake hard.
Eventually, he became very impatient and rode the middle white line between a row of cars on the left and semi's and cars on the right. I could do
nothing but wince and pray he made it. He rushed up the center line... to a red light. When the light changed, he jack-rabbited out into the
intersection to be *first*! Thankfully, no one ran the light.
The other guy was almost as bad. He only changed lanes in heavy traffic in the middle of a busy intersection in which people were turning right on
their red out onto the same highway. He almost caused one person turning out to wreck when he changed lanes almost on top of him.
I had to call my husband when I got to work to tell him about those two, I just shocked.
I knew too, the first time anything happened to either of those two riders, they would blame the car drivers.
I agree tough, a lot of people are disprespectful of motorcycles, but I try to give as much room as possible, and pay extra attention when I see them.
I think a lot of people have an attitude like, "Oooo too bad you made the choice to ride THAT."
I will say though, I haven't seen a light jumper challenge a motorcycle. That would be a bad, bad thing, IMO. I would surely stay and offer to
testify for that one!
