Another motorcycle fatality

So it happened again. Another motorcyclist killed because someone turned left in front of him.

Right in my neighborhood at Wiley Canyon and Tournament Road - where I often ride my motorcycle.

But will there be any follow-up story in The Signal regarding the car driver's possible responsibility for this tragedy? Any punishment if it were her fault?

If past experience is any indication, the answers are "no."

She'll just say "I didn't see him" - even though, by law, his headlight was on. That's what the drivers always say.

The motorcyclist was probably speeding. If so, he was partially at fault. But that does not excuse her.

If culpable drivers were punished, perhaps fewer bikers would be killed.
