And yet another reason for wearing bright colored gear. I'd think it'd be hard to convince a jury (unless they are all motorcyclist blind as well) that someone didn't see somebody who was lit up as bright as a hunter on the first day of buck season!?
I have to admit though, I'm usually not wearing too brightly colored gear. But I do keep an eye on everything around me, and hopefully will see that numb skull that doesn't see me.
One thing I'm not too in agreement on is the idea of driving being a privilege.
Anymore, it's a necessity. And it's the laws duty to penalize those who don't have respect for what other need to do, in order to lead a somewhat normal life.
More needs to be added to driving tests to make cagers aware of us two wheelers. I mean, come on, the government is going hog wild on smoking stuff because others say it endangers them. What about us bikers endangered by stupid people!!!
