Justice for motorcyclists

As a motorcyclist, I have been blessed to walk away from two traffic accidents. So I was saddened and angered at the death of Dave Purcell, a young firefighter who died when young reckless drivers pulled out in front of him. I am watching the paper to see what the outcome will be for those who killed him. From the sign put up at the roadside memorial, you would think all he needed was a helmet and he would have walked away. That is not the case.

The American Motorcycle Association is promoting a program titled "Justice for All" to focus public attention on the light sentences handed to drivers who seriously injure or kill motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians. I urge all those who ride motorcycles, bicycles or jog on the roadways to contact the AMA to help in this fight.
