The cops are everywhere all the time....moron...get in line if you need the cops..you can't possibly expect the police to be everywhere all the time? Just a little unrealistic...find something else to complain about.

Whether "just going to work" or "on the way to nowhere in fairview", speeding should be ticketed.

I'm just waiting for one to crash on N251. In the afternoon you can hear a motorcycle coming down the river road, I pray each times the person makes home, this person is moving on

As a person who used 240 this AM @ 745, I can attest to the need for Troopers or APD to be out there ticketing some of the morons that are "just going to work"!

Glad there weren't any cops out there at 7:15 :)

As I was "just going to work"

It was dark this morning, and you couldn't see who was behind you!

You all are very rude and need to think about his family. Just because he wrecked doesnt mean that he was going fast or anything to that knowledge. My best friend was killed on a motorcycle 2 years ago and he was only 21. So what happens to the guy that pulled out in front of him? Should he get a ticket or serve jail time? you think about it......

The problem is the plastic jap bikes with the young kiddie riders at the controls going as fast as they can. The harley riders aren't the problem ya bunch of morons!

First of all he was not on a plastic jap bike, he was on a Harley second of all eyewitnesses account that he was traveling 35-40 mph, he was not speeding. We came upon the accident and it was a very sad scene. I'm very sorry to the family. All bikers are not alike and 9 times out of 10 it's the careless drivers in the automobiles that cause the bike accidents in the first place.

maybe they should ticket the d.a,s that just set in the passing lane,, if you have no where to go, thats fine but pull over and stop and let the people with a life go by.

Sorry down with morons, I read yours wrong. I agree, the HD riders are not the problem. We have too much invested in our chrome to drive like idiots, we just have to watch out for the other idiots.

A huge issue with bike accidents (driver error, not other driver fault) is inexperience. With sportbikes, speed is #1. With cruisers, not understanding the physics is tops. I've seen more than one new crusier owner, fresh from the store with his credit card worse for wear run off the road because they didn't understand counter-steering.
