They need to extend those double white lines past that road.

always the feeder is not the major road it is just as named feeder, or service road to the actual highway. it is a rite of way thing. the highway is higher spped limit it is the major thoroughfair? i dont know how to spell that one. who has the rite of way at a 4 way stop if 2 or more cars stop at the same time? on a residential street for instance, there is a car parked on the street on your side of the road. there is a vehicle in the oncoming lane. is it ok for you to enter that vehicles lane to pass the parked in the street vehicle? absolutely not. you have the obstruction in your lane. you yield rite of way. it's all common sense. rip

That's assuming the truck even has scratches on the right side. They could be minimal at best. The truck body could have very well only hit the rider, or even had only knudged or pushed him, to throw him off at speed.

If the rider was leaning right, which is what would be happening if he was moving over lane by lane to the right, then depending on how big that truck is, the main truck body or bedsides may not have made any contact with bike at all. Could have been the wheels or tires or metal bumper... who knows. I do hope there is some sort of evidence left on that truck.

RIP

People will still cross solid stripes to get where they want to go. Send emails to TxDOT's Houston HQ about it. If enough people speak up, you might get longer solid stripes.

In all likelihood, the only reason someone would take that exit... switch over that fast... to that road... at that time in the evening... is to get home to one of those apartments. Other than the Park 10 office buildings, there's not much else over there.

They weren't going to Barker Cypress; otherwise they would have stayed on the feeder. Whoever the driver was, knew he had to cut over fast to make that turn, and has probably done it on a daily basis. I'd be surprised if they don't find out who it was.

Soooo technically, I can just come barreling off the freeway and cross over any lanes that I want regardless of the traffic? Motorcycle or not? Then if I hit someone, too bad, it was their fault for not yielding to ME?!

Sumptin just aint right, there.

Sounds like they need to put up some sort of posts like those at the Beltway toll plazas at freeway exits to keep drivers from immediately cutting across all lanes to make tight right turns.

I was going to post this, this morning! The guy killed was my nieces ex-boyfriend! I did'nt know the details.
My niece & my sister are terribly upset over this! Very sad news, Jerry was only 28 yrs old! I think his family all live in Corpus Christi. RIP Jerry!

Please always give the right away, when we are on a bike, we are out numbered & out weighed to by all the cagers!

Yup.

I'll regularly push cars over who fail to yield when I exit the highway. Drivers should know better. I wouldn't do it to a bike though.

there.

technically, this is the part that is wrong. you shouldn't be barreling off the highway. most exits have a yellow warning sign with suggested exit speed.

Sometimes they use the plastic poles to keep people from crossing the dbl-white. I dont' know what they're called. Something like this:
