It was another nice Sunday here in Vegas...
and lots of people were out riding today. The city has had a very low accident rate lately and you feel fairly safe. Then I see on the local news some drughead crossed the median and went head-on into a rider. The rider tried laying the bike down but he was still in the path of the oncoming car which hit the bike and then hit him, killing him instantly. I almost wonder if he'd been better off staying on the bike and getting launched over the car. The driver of the car obviously never even hit the brakes.
The driver failed two sobriety tests plus they suspect he was high on other drugs combined with alcohol. He came out without a scratch but now faces criminal DUI charges.
Even when you are doing everything right, some crackhead can still come out of nowhere and end you.
