    This guy is known to me. He had been working until 9pm then went to meet his girlfriend at a bar. He was not drinking (he doesn’t drink at all), left the bar after one hour with his girlfriend following behind in a car. XXXXXX

    Now this young man is in the hospital about to have surgery – we went to visit him and all he could say was he was happy to be alive. He has no idea how he is going to pay for the surgery – his insurance covers $30,000 but he was told it would be up to double that. He will probably lose his job and have to return homebecause he is going to be out of action for so long.

    People! Pay attention to what you are doing, DRIVING! Do not use that time to yap on your cell phones, text, fix your har, adjust your makeup or anything else. Keep 2 hands on the wheel and DRIVE SAFELY. You are in control of a killing machine and this young man is just very very lucky he is not dead right now.

    Hope they throw the full book at her…. I have the pleasure of riding a motorcycle daily and its without fail, daily, that some discourteous driver simply ignores logic and predetermines that since I am on a motorcycle, I automatically have less rights to the road than they do…. overtaking inches from me, cutting infront… u name it… we riders get it ….. Maximum sentence !!!!
