This is because June 20 was national Ride to Work Day, an event aimed at promoting and encouraging motorcycle riding with the overarching goals of saving on energy costs, reducing road congestion, and increasing the enjoyment and pleasure that biking brings. It is estimated that some 300,000 Americans commute to work on motorcycles.

Bicyclist killed in San Diego car accident

Many bicyclists are understandably wary of riding their bikes on a busy road, preferring to ride on designated bike paths to protect themselves from accidents and injuries. Unfortunately, there are times when the bike path can't protect bicyclists from irresponsible and dangerous drivers.
