I am so sad to have to tell my fellow riders this horrible story. Some of you may have
heard, others may not.
This week, in Phoenix, 8 motorcycle riders were sitting behind two other vehicles at
a red light, and a man driving a garbage truck was fiddling with some papers in the
truck while driving, NOT WATCHING WHERE HE WAS GOING OBVIOUSLY, and ran over
the bikers. The truck went over the top of them and the
bikes caught fire. At last count 3 were dead, 6 others injured, 2 super critical, 1 was
treated and walked away, 3 are seriously critical.
With riding season on us, please be careful, watch your mirrors when waiting on a light
or whatever. This man is sorry, he says, yet how many people talk on the phone or TEXT
while driving. DRIVE DEFENSIVELY.............RIDE DEFENSIVELY.
