As the "Queen" song goes "Another One Bites the Dust". Keep up the good work. Your all thinning out the herd. Pretty pathetic that we have over 40,000 traffic fatalities in this country a year and although motorcycles account for a very small fraction of the vehicles on our roads, they account for 10% of the fatalities. Of course, cyclist always cry that it's the fault of the cars turning in front of them but that's what happens when you don't see them until the last minute because many cyclist are traveling at well over 100 FPS.

Don't know if that's the case here but those early morning crashes certainly raise suspicion. At that time of the day, your more likely to see a pink elephant that a motorcyclist adhering to the speed limit.

What's going on over there, whoever wrote the article either needs to stop drinking before typing up your stories or you really need to take some English classes over again....ridiculous...even spell check would have caught those errors.

I am new to S Florida. I was surprised that there is no helmet law. I've seen people riding motorcycles with no helmet, t-shirts and shorts on I-95 passing cars on the right. It's a dangerous activity.

its another high speed crash. motorcyclists drive as if their butt is on fire. they dont wear helmets because its their voted upon right not to. they drive as fast as ever and expect all car drivers to see them and pre guess that they are going to cut infront of you at any given moment. they squeeze between cars stopped in traffic and create their own lanes. they feel as though they are above the law. it doesnt apply to them. so what was this guy doing at that hour? all of the above. i used to feel sorry for them because cars are disrespectful of them but after so many mishaps, its just getting to be stupid. they dont know they are not invincible.

Someone might not have obeyed a traffic signal at the intersection. What a great statement. Happens all of the time in Florida. Even more confusing is watching a motorcycle cop break 5-6 traffic laws in pulling someone over. There is a need to enforce speeding, I do agree on that. However, people are dying at intersections and not because someone is going 10 to 15 miles over the speed limit on a highway or main road. Yet, they can't put cops at the intersections because someone may see them when they are actually needed. Keep on hiding behind the trees and bushes, that's really saving lives.

I am guessing the motorcyclist was going at an excessive speed and not wearing a helmet... face it folks... motorcycles are not safe.. they are downright dangerous! There is no room for error on one... the is much more of a margin in a car/SUV!

yeah, and a lot of motorcyclists are speed freaks who race from light to light and weave in and out of traffic! These crotch rockets serve no purpose except to kill people!

How about that in reply to your stupid generalization!?

Perhaps it was some drunk idiot, trying to use his phone to IM he mom on AOL explaining why he it late coming home. Too busy to notice the red light and slams into a poor motorcylist just heading home from work, trying to save some money on gas to get his small son some new Nike's

One less of these sub-human nuisances to worry about. May their fatality numbers increase.

Speed also kills too. someone going way above the limit takes longer to brake than someone going the speed limit. It is not just the police to have responsibility on getting the traffic law breakers, but each person driving out there.

each person out there has their own responsibility to obey the law.

I sure hope the flat bed truck wasn't damaged. They serve a more useful purpose than a motorcyclist.

You have to understand that Florida is really run by lobbyist. Whether a law gets passed or not depends on the "campaign contributions" of professional lobbyist. Every group seems to have them from the Pawn Shops, to the Towing industry to the moving industry. In this case, the motorcyclist groups must've given more money to our "leaders" than the trauma surgeons who have been pushing to have the law repealed.

Here you need $10,000 worth of medical insurance to ride without a helmet. That'll cover about 15 minutes in a trauma unit with the taxpayers footing the remainder of the bill most likely. Especially if we have to water them for life.
