    Default Texting and speed


    The Honda crotch rocket rider was traveling at approximately 85 mph.
    The VW dri...ver was talking on a cell phone when she pulled out from a side street, apparently not seeing the motorcycle. The rider's reaction time was not sufficient enough to avoid this accident.

    The car had two passengers and the bike rider was found INSIDE the car with them.
    The Volkswagen actually flipped over from the force of impact and landed 20 feet from where the collision took place.

    All three involved (two in the car and the bike rider) were killed instantly. This graphic demonstration was placed at the Motorcycle Fair by the Police and Road Safety Department..

    Pass this on to car drivers or soon to be new drivers, or new motorcycle owners and especially everyone you know who has a MOBILE phone!!!
    A picture is worth a thousand words.

    Save a life. Stop talking on mobile phones and Texting while trying to drive.
    The life you save may be your own..... Or mine...


    Keep passing this on so everyone will see what can happen by using a mobile PHONE while driving

    They just implemented a law here in Pa. making hand held phones and texting illegal while driving. $50 fine---are you kidding me????????? I think I see more people in their 30's and 40's still yakking than teenagers. You know "It can't happen to me". And GD has a graveyard full of people who thought the same thing.

    WOW, I gave up riding when my son was born because I was afraid of being involved in something like that. I still miss my bike but that is a great reminder of what can happen.

    Using a handheld mobile phone whilst driving was made illegal over here several years ago, can be a 1200 fine.
    I still see many people using them, morons!!!
