    Cars turning in the path of motorcycles has become increasingly common. I both ride motorcycles and drive a car. When on two wheels I assume that the car driver is oblivious to me, but if the car turns right in front of me I am helpless. When I drive a car, I find it not difficult at all to see motorcycles. I am nearly 52 years old and still have no problem seeing motorcycles. Open your eyes people and please, put the cell phone down and stop playing with the screens on your dashboard.
