Drive Safe out there

Just witnessed a horrible accident in queens, on the corner of the house where i live. two guys riding on a single motorcycle hit a bus today on mothers day, the pedestrians were saying they were dead on impact. its real sad to see such a tragedy on mothers day.

Be safe out there people & be alert!

It is tragic when an accident happens like this with a motorcyclist. I always try to be cautious and courteous when I see other riders. However, there are riders that deserve what is coming to them. Yesterday I had a rider pass me on my left on a 2 lane busy street (one lane each direction) and rode into the neutral zone (yellow diagonal stripes) to get to the left turning lane which I was going into as well. He then was adjusting his helmet with BOTH hands while still moving (riding with no hands) after he passed me. This kid is only wearing a helmet and shorts and a tshirt. Then he proceeded to barely make the left in front of a speeding car while I saw the car brake hard.

Moral of the story, be careful, be courteous, take control of as much as you can.

well i understand what you just said. what makes it even more sad is that the bus driver (female) was making a left turn on a green light, and the motorcyclists had the right of way.

the operator of the bike had a helmet on but the other guy did not, I'm guessing they lived around here. fortunately the Priest was behind the bike(traveling in his car along with his mother) and witnessed everything. also gave their report to the police.
