In response to the May 26 letter stating that motorcycle riders need to drive with more caution: We always drive with caution because car drivers don't pay attention to motorcycles as much as they should. Accidents involving a car and a motorcycle are not always the fault of the motorcycle. Many times the operator of the car does something brainless and causes an accident - like turning left in front of a motorcycle when the bike clearly has the right of way.
As far as wearing a helmet, it's a choice we make to wear a helmet or not. It is not up to the nonriding general public to decide if we should have to wear a helmet.
