  1. “The Toyota was pulling off to the north side of the roadway to turn around”?

    In a driveway?

    Doing a U Turn?

    This makes little sense!

  2. Was the report written by one of the bulls of the Sheriff’s Dept’s lesbian junta?

    They get a lot wrong all the time.

    It’s a sweet 5th column in LE.

  3. It sounds like she cut him off. Read the County Scanner report. People don’t see or hear motorcycles all the time and force them off the road. She needs to be charged.

  4. The Man is Obviously at fault…who does not wear a helmet when your on a bike, reckless.

    Following too close and not paying attention is what comes to my mind when reading this article

    To the comment above mine.

    If one would look up the location on maps & have a sense of direction (coordinates),than the situation makes plenty of sense.

    You simply do’nt STOP on a highway to make a u-turn.

    Cindy– where exactly did you come to the conclusion that the car cut the bike off?
