Sorry but I will not sign garbage like this....sorry for your accident but it was an ACCIDENT...had you been secured in a vehicle with seat belts maybe you wouldn't have suffered such injuries! If you are on a dangerous motorcycle then you should be a more aware to your surroundings....its the RISK that YOU take! Were you wearing helmets and all of the proper protective gear? Its not that other motorists DOn't look for you! BTW when I take my truck over the railroad tracks I don't expect the train to "look out" for me!

We all accept risks in our lives however, we motorcycle enthusiasts are expected to abide by all the same laws as you inbred jeds in your trucks. If YOU cause the accidents, say by running a red light or have the asinine excuse "I didn't see them" then you should pay an increased penalty. We as motorists should be paying attention for ANY potential hazard. Your comment makes it sound like it's open season on bikers. Motorcycles aren't dangerous, but assholes like you are.

Running a red light can happen to anyone and Im sure you have also and didnt even know it!!! Thats an ACCIDENT!! Whether you hit a cyclist, motorist, trucker or a train!!! When you sit bitch on the back of the bike do you always wear a helmet and leather coverings?? ITS YOUR RISK anytime you ride in any vehicle!!! I hope a family member of yours gets put away for 14 years because they didnt see the crotch rocket swerving through traffic at 55 in a 25 MPH!! There are responsible bikers and then there are irresponsible bikers that abuse the power of the machines they are on!! OPEN MIND BEFORE OPEN MOUTH!!!!

I am truly very sorry to hear about your father-in-law but you cant blame all motorists for one idiot trying to beat traffic nor one specific incident....it doesnt make him more responsible!! Cyclist have to assume the risk of sitting on a motor with 2 wheels, exposed to the open road without protection (i.e. motorists seatbelt regulations) and only being 1/4 of the size of the average vehicle on the roadways.......which I do and I also understand that it is my choice to take that risk by...

Which means 9 out of 10 times the idiots dont even see a larger vehicle.....maybe they should pay heftier fines for hitting larger objects!!

why? because I know that Im the one putting myself at risk and dont feel that someone should be punished more if an accident does occur......Im man enough to accept the fact that someone has more of a chance to not see me and that I will prolly suffer more physical harm because I am exposed....Im just sick of fellow enthusiasts acting like other motorists dont respect us and we have no rights!! Do you really think that someone doesnt give a fuck if they hit a cyclist??

People on motorcycles and bicycles are obviously vulnerable and we driver of cars and trucks have to be extremely careful. I would also like to see every person on a bicycle or motorcycle wearing a helmet.

I agree with one condition that all motorcyclests drive the speed limit. There have been times when I would be driving on the highway and a motorcycle flies by going well over 100mph. True, we drivers should PAY ATTENTION to their surroundings. People on motorcycles should go the speed limit because one second no one is in my blind spot, and the next moment there is a bike zooming past me on the shoulder. Just a thought.

I'd also like to see people riding bicycles follow traffic laws - like stopping at stop signs and riding on the right side of the road.

As for motorcycles obeying the speed limits - I would only agree with that with someone who also obeyed the law and the speed limits. (Yes, I am a law abiding citizen. I obey the speed laws.) It's everyone's responsibility to obey the law.

I really DON'T think them wearing their helmets makes a difference. People out there NEED to be ALERT for people on motorcycles wether they have helmets on or NOT!!!!

Yes, that is completely true. But I can't help but feel that Mr. and Mrs. Beimfohr could have avoided the mental traumas by simply wearing a device specifically made for motorcyclists. I.E. The Helmet.

I would love to sign this, but saying all people that hit motorcyclist is there fault is wrong. We just need make people aware of our 2 & 3 wheeled friends. I have many motorcycle buddies. This is a stiff penanlty for something that may actually be the motorcyclists fault, not the 4-18 wheeled drivers fault.

Thank you Gary! It just seems they want to blame the one with the bigger vehicle. That is like saying to the older sibling "you are the older one so it is your fault" even if it is not.

This one is very close to home. I lost my brother due to a drunk truck driver who hit him while he was riding a motorbike. This needs to be passed as a law in India as well, currently all you get is 1 month in jail after 10 years of a court case as it was an "accident:!

IF A PERSON ON A MOTORCYCLE IS HIT BY ANYONE, THEY SHOULD BE PUT IN JAIL AND THE KEY THROWN IN LAKE TOHO. MOST MOTORCYCLES HAVE FLASHING LIGHTS TAKE TIME TO WATCH OUT FOR THEM. ITS THE LAW AND THE RIGHT THING TO DO.

Bubba, I respect those who ride and follow the law while riding! However, I am sick of those who weave in and out of traffice going way over the speed limit and completely ignoring any and all laws and completely disrespecting those of us who watch out for all other drivers, not just those on motorcycles. I have been riding since I was seven years old and I know that you have to respect yourself, the bike and the others around you. So, sorry, I refuse to sign your petition for those who are ignorant and ruin it for everyone else.

My husband almost had a close call about a month ago, scared the hell out of me! He was riding ahead of me quite a bit and I could see a car coming off the exit ramp from the parkway. I had a feeling it wasn't going to stop, it started pulling out, my thought was Oh God, I'm going to watch my husband get killed. Total Panic! At the last second he saw what was happening and yanked the bike away, it just missed him! You could tell by the expression on her face, as we were showing her our anger, she never saw him!

But then on the other hand you have the people who should NEVER have been given a motorcycle license. They show off zig zagging and squeeze in between cars because "they fit". This happens to me all the time and makes me so mad because it wouldn't be my fault if I hit them, it would be their reckless driving.
