WYCD Hoedown 2018 ANNOUNCED: Dierks Is Coming! Details | LineupTickets | 2017 Recap

car motorcycle wreck opt Crotch Rockets OUT OF CONTROL!

Yesterday I reported a “motorcycle” on fire on I-75 causing delays…..and when I got home, my husband Jeff said, “That IDIOT is LUCKY to be ALIVE”! The “crotch rocket” rider FLEW by my hubby BETWEEN 2 cars on I-75, and lost control…

Jeff said that about a mile after that, there “the idiot” was….standing on the side of the freeway, with his cell phone in hand, escaping serious injury or DEATH, with his totalled  “crotch rocket” burning on the freeway. I KNOW, that not all riders of this particular type of motorcycle drive like maniacs, so carelessly, but I DO see them going upwards of 100 MPH on the freeway quite often….HOW BOUT YOU? What do YOU think about this?

    They call it lanesplitting. I found that the inly state that allows it is CA. But most also don’t have any laws against it.

    I don’t think we need any more laws then we already have. This is an issue of responsibility. It is not our job to police these idiots. It is our job to be a responsible driver. This is a case of irresponsibility which is ever increasing among our populous. Nature needs to weed these people out of society, as bad as it may sound, nature failed to weed this idiot out yesterday. I’d rather see someone like him become road burger than an innocent bystander.

    My son in laws brother was killed on one of these about 8 yrs ago, it was not his fault, but I do believe they should outlaw them. My son-in-laws mother adopted the road he was killed on, this is a very sad story and it should be known to the idiots out there who abuse them.

    I want to thank you for saying something over the radio about these crotch rockets!!!! Something needs to be done about the people who ride them crazy like this person did. My husband is in a Motorcycle Club, and safety come first. They respect the road and others. I was on the back of my husbands Harley just the other night, and along came three crotch rockets flying by us so fast and close to us, that it had shifted me a little on the back of the bike, when the passenger on the back of a bike gets shifted just a touch it cause the driver of the bike to have to lose a little of control of the bike, my husband said to me “all I have to say is that I wish I didn’t have you on the back of my bike right now”. But my point is they have to respect the road and others. Just as vehicles have to respect the bikers out there on the road, one wrong move and it can cost a life. Thank you again for talking about the crotch rockets out there driving out of control!

    What an idiot! I have many “crotch rockets” flyong down the roads at neck breaking speeds. I have even had some pass me on the highway by using the shoulder. One day I saw some IDIOT pop a wheely and ride it for about 1/2 a mile. These idiots give a bad name to motorcycle riders everywhere!

    Yes…once I was just as judging…just as critical of those idiots…didn’t matter whether they were in a truck or on a bike…it happens…its irresponsible and crazy…but personally I’ve never met a perfect person….well there was one close to perfect…my nephew…an angel…so sweet, loving, hardworker, kind…served in the air force..one of the greatest guys you’d ever want to meet…and he didn’t need to be weeded out…he loved and was loved…but he died in a crotch rocket accident…so now…I think before I judge and criticize…and you will too…when it happens to someone you love. THE TRUE IDIOT IS THE PERSON WHO BELIEVES HE WILL NOT AND NEVER WILL ACT ONE MOMENT IRRESPONSIBLY. ..OR THAT SOMEONE HE LOVES DEARLY WILL NOT…

      I am VERY sorry for your loss Janna, my deepest sympathy to you and your nephews family too. One of my best friend’s son just got one of these, and he too, is a GREAT kid, very responsible, sweet and kindhearted. I am so afraid for him though, and his best buddy just got into a wreck, that was NOT his fault at all, so I DO understand that not all riders of crotch rockets are bad drivers.

    I see them all the time on my road doing wheelies going about 80 or 100 miles an hour , I was at walmart and i was making a left turn there was two bikes and they were spinning tires and when i took a left turn he hit me he went to pass me when I took my left turn and he hit me on my truck , they are meant for racing on not on these roads , I think they should be bain,
