Watch out for the motorcyclists

Through your pages I would like to appeal to all motorcycle riders to write to their MP demanding that anyone wishing to drive a car should spend two years riding a motorbike to gain vital awareness of other road users. Only today two people have tried to kill me by pulling out straight in front of me. On dry roads there maybe a small chance of saving the situation - but damp or wet roads, no chance.

Drivers should remember if they kill a motorcyclist in this manner they are MURDERERS. Only last week a lady who did not SEE me said she was DEAF! We need a hard, very hard hitting campaign to make people. aware of us.

So please bikers write to your MP and your local, and National newspapers make this happen
