Default Looking for a Video

Hang Around


I seen a video on line where a guy was talking to his wife in there car, not paying attention to the road, and left turned in front of a bike and unfortunately the bike hit him in the passenger door.

Can you direct me to that video? I want to send a link to my state senator urging him to promote some public safety awareness of motorcycles on the streets.

Do you think that if all of us that are riders, were to contact our goverment officials, maybe instead of worring about all of us wearing helments, or driving the speed limit, we could get a few public service announcements on tv, reguarding motorcycle awareness.



Thanks
Tom

Unfortunately we can't remove the cagers and the other variables from the equation. But hey if it was safe it wouldn't be as much fun
