      I don't understand how it is the government's responsibility.

      What exactly can the government do???? You can enact any number of laws, but with only so many and so many enforcement officers how would such laws be enforced?
      I really don't know the answer. We just hope the whole idea will soon wear itself out.

    Since nobody in authority can help us to get rid of this nuisance someone higher is helping us. Do we know how much of NHI and SOC SECURITY money is paid for all these accidents?

      @Tola Girl: It'll stop when they're all either dead or maimed and can't ride. Same with the guns.

    CCTV, CCTV, CCTV, CCTV, CCTV. Record them driving recklessly and then take their bikes away. Maybe even attach decibel monitors to the cameras too and remove bikes that exceed a certain noise level. Job done.

    It is time for Kye to create an Enforcement Unit in the DMV since the police want to do it. Frazer was trying to do it I think but they dropped the ball. Now this is another chance have Enforcement Officers in DMV to give ticket, and drivers who break the law and give them power to arrest and lock up all them bikers who ride illegally, hands done.

    why not ban cars..the bikes are not the problem, lack of education is the problem. No riding school, lack of road rules being followed. it all Bol downs to the rider.

I know when them crash on those 600—750 cc IT WONT BE NO ROAD RASH—-the pieces is what will be picked up —- I pray for our young men

    Twice today I came close to being hit by a scooter.
    1) scooter passed me from behind at a high rate of speed, only to duck right in front of me to avoid oncoming car. Came so close to me to avoid oncoming car, he almost hit my door and mirror.
    2) scooter rider doing pop a wheely on one back tire, swerved and I had to jam on brakes to avoid hitting him.
    These are 2 different riders. My DAMN nerves are shot.
    3) Riding with a 3 year old boy in the front and the mother on the back..3 freaking people on 1 bike! WTF???
