Texting and Driving
The cut and paste link below will take you to a recently issued accident reconstruction report from NPS regarding a fatal accident that occurred several months ago on the Natchez Trace in Mississippi. The victim biker was a well-known and respected MD. He was wearing a bright yellow “3-foot” jersey when he was hit. The driver was a minor which is why sections of the report are redacted. The Trace is a great place to ride a bike and you see many bikers out there every day. I have ridden thousands of miles on the Trace over the last 10-15 years, sometimes alone sometimes in a group. But like every road these days the distracted drivers are not limited to the drunks. If you have kids that drive have them read the report to let them know how dangerous texting and driving really is. You might save some rider’s life, maybe even your own.
