Cagers can not see motorcyclists

There was a car that ran into a police car this morning on i-10. The police cars lights were flashing and someone still runs into the police car. If they can not avoid that, then we really are invisible. Granted there may have been other factors involved but this is what we deal with on a daily basis. aaaarrrggghh.

This is why I don't ride on the street.

Same that pulled me over after I sped up to get away from the person tail-gating me....

Of course it was her tail-gating me...hard to see the lights on the roof at night when they're so close you can hear THEIR engine...

Hope she's off the street for a while.
