Above is an article that appeared a local newspaper, News-Sentinel, about the fatal motorcycle accident with two young men my son rides motorcycles with. My heart goes out to their families and I know but for the grace of God it could have been my own son and how devastating it must be for them. It is tragic because both accidents might have been avoided if they had not been going too fast or trying to beat a light.
On a motorcycle, it is even more so important to be a defensive driver and no speed as there really is no protection in the event of an accident.
