D'oh! Pulled Over For Speeding

It's been quite a while since I've been pulled over, but it happens. To be honest, I had no idea how fast I was going, I usually just go along with traffic. There was only one other car on the road at the time and he was going just as fast as I was.

I was probably singled out for being on a bike. If given a choice between the two, I can understand going after the bike as I'm sure the stats would probably be in favor of writing multiple citations. I've seen too many riders who don't even have their 'M' endorsement and others who don't bother with their state inspection. Fair enough. The state trooper was nice and it worked out in the end. *phew*

Accidents Happen - Common Courtesy

I was stopped at a red light on the wr250x and heard the unmistakable car crunch sound as the car to my right lunged forward a bit. It wasn't bad at all, but I as a bit miffed at the driver (and her passenger). If you crash your car into someone else car, you should probably get out immediately and make sure they are ok, right? I mean, that's common courtesy. Sheesh.
