I have one of those on my rear bumper. I have learned that I can't do two things at once very well, so, unless someone I care about is in ICU, I don't make calls while driving. My wife does, but, oddly, finds herself feeling hypocritical when she's driving my car, and will find a place to pull over if she needs to call someone. Loud Bumperstickers Save Lives.

"In the Aerostitch catalogue is an EMP for destroying cell phones. When that becomes a real product let me know because I want one. People need to understand that when they are talking on their cell phone they are no longer driving."



Scroogle "Cell phone jammer".

There's something like 13 states (maybe more now) that have "Keep Right" Laws.



I've only heard stories of Enforcement in Texas and Nevada.

It's interesting though, when you drive out front. The lead driver assumes a responsibility to not only monitor his own suceptability to police radar, but also, if smart enough, is responsible to guide a large line of vehicles behind him. He must be aware of the capabilities of the multi-ton trucks, semi tractors, and others following his bike or hot-hatch, to know that none of them can react, stop, or evade a hazard nearly as quickly as him. And when your in the front, you set pace (mostly talking two-lanerz, here) and one must also realize that human beings are followers. If you pass someone, they will speed up to tail you 8 out of 10 times.



Ride safe out there, all you legal lane-splitters. There is a lot of momentum moving, and basically the safest mode of bike driving is to affect the metal-mass flow as least as possible; slide in, and slide out without a ripple.

Wow

I thought I wrote that!!!!!!

I tell my self, slow down, slow down.......

But then i get behind these total IDIOTS that are on and off the brake for no reason that I can see. And I get MAD, then off I go again, telling myself, leave the IDIOT behind.

I just cant ride/drive in a group of cages.



My driving is so agressive that my wife calls me to see if I was part of the accident she herd about on the radio.



I just feel much safer riding/driving out front, out of the group. As cagers seem to like following each other.



I dont think the cops will understand that one though..........
