Rave: Motorcyclist appreciates drivers who do it right


With the motorcycle season coming to an end, I would like to extend my thanks to all the drivers out there who had the ability to operate a vehicle properly. I had far less incidents or close calls this year than the past three or four years. I just hope this driver awareness continues in the future.

To all you others out there, take a few seconds to look where you are merging, turning and/or stopping. Or maybe just get off your laptop, put the makeup away and stop talking on your phone. Both two-wheeled and four-wheeled vehicles will appreciate that greatly.
