Great post, MR! And, if you drive a car.... it will make you a safer driver also, super defensive driving that is. When I go through a green lighted intersection in my 54,000 lb crane truck, the habits I have learned riding all things 2 wheeled over the years, automatically come into play: I always look to see if someone is blowing thru the light. Regardless of the fact that it would not be my problem but theirs, just a habit now to look, always. I'm always amazed when stopped at a red light, and the driver next me, just stomps on the throttle, without looking for a red light runner, when the light turns green, ARE YOU KIDDING ME? 2 wheeled operators, motorcycles, bikes, whatever, (OK, 3 wheeled also), are probably some of the safest drivers of car or trucks out there. Several times just today, while having the legal right of way, and seeing a car at a stop sign waiting for me to pass by before they pulled out, I just assumed they may not see me and pull out in front of me. Probably like many here, I am an avid reader of the local police log, concerning vehicle accidents, as an educational tool. So many accidents could be avoided if the drivers were more vigilant, even though they were in the right, ( had the green, whatever) they were still wrong by not keeping their eyeballs peeled.
