While driving south on Highway 71 recently I noticed the traffic-alert board read “Share the Road With Motorcycles.” This seemed strange to me. I had just witnessed one motorcyclist speed between two lines of stopped cars at a stoplight to shoot ahead of everyone. Before that, two motorcyclists missed our car by inches as they weaved in and out of moving traffic, traveling well over the speed limit.
This highway is becoming a playground for every idiot and hotdog on two wheels. I think “Caution: Motorcyclists at Play” would be a more appropriate message to display these days.
