I can' t believe the comments some people are posting... what is wrong with you people? Someone lost their life and you are not the one to be judging how HE lost it. Stop, and have some sympathy. There is a family mourning for their love one have some respect. When I read about this incident my heart broke into a million pieces. I just kept thinking about all the details they give in these news and my stomach just turned. It is such a tragedy. My prayers go out to his loved ones. God bless him. I also pray that his family finds the strength that they will need.

Obviously with the amounts of fatalities and accidents in this construction corridor policing ourselves I agree about 88% of us do but it's the other 22% of the morons that get us into accidents . Lane splitting should be against the law in a construction zone .

Drivers tend to drive too closed to the vehicles ahead of them. 55 mph = 80 feet per second. 65 mph = 95 feet per second. 75 mph = 110 feet per second.. If you are going this fast with only 30 to 50 feet behind another car and suddenly the cars ahead are going a lot slower you are likly going going to crash. Reaction IF you are already paying attention is about one-half second to start applying the brakes. Drive safely!
