    Wishing the rider a speedy recovery, most these guys can't ride and dont respect the road or the bikes that they are riding and turn a blind eye to what can occur when all goes wrong, because accidents do happen, things will only change when they learn to respect those machines, is a time and place for everything, especially when you want to whind back that throttle.

    You want to host registration drive for these little miscreants? Make them so what they need to do to be road worthy; follow the traffic rules. ATV riders on the road need to be fined higher than reckless bike riders, just because those are off-road bikes. Increase the fines exponentially, deter road disobedience period.

    There will be more accidents involving motor scooters unless the riders are trained to use the roads properly. When driving or riding a motor scooter the rules of the road MUST be observed. We have a group of reckless and unmannerly young people on these motor scooters that feel that the road belongs to them and anyone in their path must move out of their way.

    When riding or driving, if the path is not clear one needs to slow down and give way to other vehicles. However, sadly these young riders do not lower their speed. They will continue with the same speed and create accidents. It is like in the Wild West, if you do not get out of my way I will knock you down. Good luck to all of them. Unless there is a change of attitude Davis Funeral Home Is waiting For Them.

    I have seen so many times when I have to stop dead in traffic because another vehicle stopped, someone crossing the street or an animal or double parked car, which I have to wait until traffic is clear. You would not imagine some morons behind, who cannot even see why the holdup and start honking their horns. Some take it upon themselves to try and pass 2 or 3 cars in front of them, only to see they are now stuck in front of oncoming traffic. Do they think people are just sitting there for the fun of it? We would have less accidents if people would be patient.
