Fact is,

There is a lot of Motorcycles running around.

I feel that the excuse, I didn’t see the bike, is ridiculous.

Same thing applies to bicycles.

Both modes of travel have been present for as long as there has been cars.

Killing someone is Atleast Man 1.

Open your eyes and get off your damn phones.

Probably preventable. Driver error.

Motorcycles are hard to see. Was the motorcycle tailgating, lanesplitting, or traveling in the car’s blind spot?

People walking are hard to see. VW Beetles are hard to see. My MX5 is hard to see.

Yet, you aren’t accusing those drivers?

It was a stop. Of course people will tailgate, it’s the nature of a stop. There are myriad blind spots on all cars, and few are the same. It’s the nature of different models of cars. Why do you have a problem with the legal traffic maneuver of Lane Splitting? It’s the nature of a law to obey it.
