"The male rider was taken to the hospital by ground ambulance with several broken bokes."

I hope his bokes heal up well. A man's gotta have his bokes.

What is it about the median that is the problem? I believe there has been several wrecks at this spot. From google maps, it doesn't look like it should be a problem.

Daylight is fine ... night time its a low light area. They still have not painted that thing yellow which would end all this . Its very hard to see at night.

Yeah I think so...

They also built a median/divider near my place for the onramp before 59 and Kirby. I've seen cars hit it so many times so now they have cones up around it.

Lets make a ride to go paint that .

So the roadway is painted with stripes leading up to the entrance ramp with the reflector land dividers in the stripes. I don't see any issue with the median at all. So it seems to me that these riders, and drivers that hit the thing were either going too fast or were in the wrong lane trying to cut over at the last minute. I just don't see the problem here.
