What more needs to be said! Motorcycles should be banned. They never go under or at the speed limit. They love to reve the engine with idleing. If they were mosquitoes, we would swat them.

The words to a youthful girl, have been taken to heart and are still there. I'll miss him...but i'll always remember him.

This would be a good time to strengthen some laws in Illinois. It seems if you kill someone by driving inattentively, you will not be charged with a crime.

Add one sip of cold medicine to the driver that was rear ended and, in turn, caused the death of the biker, it becomes 100% the cold medicine consumers fault and she gets charged with reckless homicide.

What a joke Illinois laws are. You can serve years in prison for having been arrested with a measurable amount of some substance in your blood AND not causing an accident, yet when there is no substance in a person's blood and a person is killed, a crash is determined to be an accident.

Guess what prohibitionist group with their tear jerking stories and slick marketing gets those bad laws passed?

Someone should go to jail for this death - regardless of substances (or not) in their blood.

That's a silly argument for multiple reasons. If you took all vehicles off the road that exceeded the speed limit, you'd have empty roads. It's often more dangerous to go under the speed limit than over it. It's extremely unlikely that all motorcyclists never go at or below the speed limit. The problem in the first accident was the sudden appearance of a car crossing over into the wrong lane - not the motorcyclist.

since im getting blocked in my language let me just say that some of these comments are absolutely ridculous. A family has lost a father, husband, son and uncle and all you can ask is if they were legal citizens? Take a deep look into yourself and judge what kind of person who are to ask a question like that when some one has died. This kind of ignorance is the reason why death and violence seem like no big deal and has claimed innocent victims lives.

I was Ivan's coworker and all of us are and always have been the safest drivers whether in a car or on the motorcycles. Ivan did nothing wrong but his life has come to an end because of a careless AUTOMOBILE driver who wasn't paying attention and rear ended the car that killed Ivan.

I send my most sincere condolences to the Lizcano Family... Ivan "is" a good man with a big heart. Although, I knew him for a short time--he left a lasting impression. He is in my prayers.

I am not sure why my original comment was deleted but I hope that Chijac8 had a chance to see it. Again, a person that has these kind of comments should think twice before posting them. Do you have a family? I hope nothing like this happens to you because as they say "What goes around comes around". Do you realize how cruel these comments are? Ivan was a wonderful dad and a devoted husband and you SIR are an IDIOT

I had the good fortune to work with Ivan at skokie shops a few years ago. I had the greatest respect for him. He was a man of tremendous character. My thoughts and prayers go out to all his family.

Many condolences to you and your family. Your comments, however, are completely ridiculous.

How is it the person's fault that they got rear ended and slid into the intersection?

If the rear ender was drunk, high, illegal, suspended DL, then perhaps they should be charged with a crime, but if its an average law abiding citizen - IT WAS AN ACCIDENT and nothing more.

Driving a motorcycle is a MAJOR risk, helmet, leather jacket, knee pads, elbow pads or other.

I am sure the drivers of the cars feel badly that they were parties in a fatal accident. Your attacks will not help the situation.

I suggest you spend some time grieving your Uncle and perhaps remembering all of the good times - rather than projecting bad thoughts to those involved in the ACCIDENT.

Chijac8: It is just amazing how you can trivialize the death of human being. My uncle Ivan, who taught me to drive manual transmission years ago, Always made safety and driving defensively a priority. What one may question is the carelessness of the driver who rear-ended the car that ended my uncle's life. One can only speculate what That driver was doing (ie. talking on the phone, fumbling with the radio, applying lipstick, etc etc) who did not realize there was a car in the road ahead of her! We should all reflect on the careless things we do as we drive every day...a few seconds of poor judgement can cost someone their life! We have lost an officer of the law, an army vet, a role model for all of what it means to be an honest, hard-working, man of character.

What's amazing is how you felt compelled to write a comment that is both unnecessary and idiotic. Perhaps you are related to chijac8. You can only hope that when you pass, someone will have something nice to say about you! Save your juvenile and asinine comments for a chat room, "Parent".
