"Rost told police he saw a group of motorcyclists coming toward him and tried to swerve to avoid hitting them, but lost control of his car. "

Maybe if you were driving properly, you wouldn't have had to try to avoid hitting the cyclists, moron!

Sounds more like a feeble attempt to make it sound like the motorcyclists were in his lane, of which it is clear they weren't. S*ck it up, buddy. You wanted to drive like an idiot, so now step up to accept your responsibility and consequences!

Where are the videos on the site? I want to see them.

I took the safety course, but it doesn't matter how much you practice safe riding... if some moron is gonna come at you in their much larger car speeding, and then loses control because of it all, there isn't a whole lot you can do but hope you can get out of the way fast enough.

There are usually two main cycle accidents. An accident resulting from the motorcyclist speeding and losing control, which usually happens in corners and is usually only the cycle in the accident. The other is people not paying enough attention or in too much of a hurry and they are cutting off cyclists and cause the accident. Rarely is a cyclist the one soley responsible for the accident when another type of vehicle is involved.

Whether its cycles or not.... people need to get of their phones, stop texting, slow down a bit, and pay attention. I don't care if it's a teenie, a soccer mom, or you're late for bowling.... get a grip and slow down.

AS far as the cyclists are concerned..... some of you knuckleheads need to calm down too! You don't need to ride past traffic at stop lights, do wheelies down 22, or rev your engines to hear your pipes like you are some hardcore biker and you're some weekend warrior... have some courtesy for others too.

I only found two, but they were worth viewing, one is on intersections and the other is on common courtesy towards motorcyclists. Center of the page left hand side

I agree this man did a terrible thing, but I am a little discouraged at the bail amount. People that commit crimes such as robbery, driving drunk, drugs, and many more offenses usually get 25,000 or 50,000 bail. Again, what he did was wrong but the justice system is so screwed up. This was an accident, even though he was doing something illegal. I read much worse things every day in the morning call and to see this man getting such a high bail amount is not really logical, not to mention, it will not bring back this poor lady who lost her life. I just wish the justice system had a major overhaul and things were different.

Excellent! Too many motorists drive like a bat out of he!!, like other motorists and cyclists are a mere annoying obstruction to overcome so they, the most important people on the planet, can get to where they are going. I love to watch them weave in and out of traffic like they're playing a video game.

Then a tragedy like this happens. And like "Interesting" wrote, sometimes cyclists are just as bad.

What the heck is the big hurry??? Not worth a life!

Thanks.... I saw those pictures before and it wouldn't let me click on them. I guess the page didn't load right the first time and I could get to the movies this time.

THe sad part is that is all just common sense driving/riding. Too bad commons sense isn't so common.

The "intersection" video is placed blatantly on the homepage.

From THERE , you'll find the "common road" video.

THEN , you can click "basic riders course" and get an idea of the training necessary before you can earn your "M" endorsement.

Pa DOT examiners teach the course.
At the end of the course, you take a 'course' test.

Long before you get THAT far , there are 2 classroom tests. Fail one of those and you don't even get ONTO the 'range' with a coach.

( Special thanks to my PaDOT examiner BOB HUNT for all of his help,fairness and wonderful patience)

I was a friend of Kim's many years ago. The world, most especially her family, has lost a wonderful soul. She is certainly of the most beautiful of angels.
