Traffic and Safety Matters


I ride a motorbike to and from work every day and it never ceases to surprise me how many drivers clearly want to be clients.

Last night riding home I saw a blue Lexus almost leave the freeway exit. I say almost because he changed his mind at the last minute and careered across a bus lane and back into the flow of traffic. I treated that as a warning.

The next exit was fast approaching, it’s a wide throated intersection and the blue car was right in front, I indicated and moved left into the intersection; the blue car headed straight on. O he did until the last 10m of the intersection when, of course he, yes he, pulled in front of me.

At this point I had the temerity to toot my horn and flash my head light. Clearly, in the opinion, of at least, the front seat passenger this was wrong of me: I was greeted with and open passenger window and given the bird. I’m not sure how this was justified but clearly this young man is destined to be a client of the future – one way or another.

Remember to please look twice for motorbikes, a collision with one could result in some very serious criminal charges if the rider is injured or worse killed.

Please share the road.
