There is way too many accident where people on motorcycles are getting killed. I have known of 4 in the past 2 weeks where 3 have dies. People in cars need to understand that a motorcycle is smaller than a vehicle so you cannot judge speed and distance as well. DO NOT TURN OR PULL OUT IN FRONT OF A MOTORCYCLE. The worst thing that could happen if you wait 10 seconds for the motorcycle to pass is you might be 10 seconds later to your destination. PLEASE PEOPLE PAY ATTENTION!!!!!!
