The article at this link is a story from the Johnson City Press about 2 motorcycle fatalities. In it,
Lt. Larry Williams of the Johnson City police states that "over 70 percent of all motorcycle crashes are caused by people making a left turn in front of the motorcycle. And invariably, the driver will always say, 'well I didn't see them."
Drivers have an obligation to watch for motorcycles just as they watch for cars and trucks. Failure to do so may result in charges or negligence or even recklessness. Watch out for motorcycles!
