    On an unrelated note, let's take this one step further. How about we make driver's license renewals (every 4-5 years?) include a road test, just like when the license was first issued? Too many poor drivers out there. Easier to police, better quality flow of traffic, lower insurance rates, and additional revenue for the government.

    I will bet that the driver of the vehicle did not see the motorcyclist. That is normally a popular explanation for caged drivers not paying attention and or driving with undue care.... The RNC need to issue more tickets for this type of infraction. Motorcyclists are at risk by the thoughlessness of these types of drivers.
