I am always cautious when it comes to people on motorcycles but I can't always say they are cautious of people in cars. Some have the attitude that they own the road.

I had an incident where I went through green light eastbound and had two men on bikes from the northbound lane make a right and were riding to the right side of me. I had on my blinker to turn into Walgreens and had I not been paying attention I would have hit the first one who continued straight and the one that was turning into Walgreens as well. When I said something to the guy in the parking lot about how unsafe he was and that I almost hit him his comment was " Well if you had hit me I would have sued you and would own everything you have". I of course called him an IDIOT. But some of the riders feel they own the road.

Personally I think that the lane sharing of bikes and cars need to be outlawed.

"....... law enforcement officials are continuing to warn drivers to safely share the road with motorcyclists......"

Have you seen the way some motorcyclists drive? You're stopped in traffic and here comes some jerk along side of you. I see them riding along the shoulder when traffic is bad.
