As always, its sad to hear about any fatal accidents. However, the law should force ALL motorcyclist to wear safety equipments & carry some sort of auto insurance.

No safety equipment or Insurance is going to do anything about a unattentive person making a left turn across two lanes of oncoming traffic directly into your path while steering a motorcycle. if that person were a little more attentive they would have seen the gas station straight ahead on the right ,on the OPOSITE corner, which happens to be on the way to New Port Richie, where the person resides. All any driver can do is predict and assume that every car has an drunk old person driving, and don't let it happen before it does. Its Defensive Driving, and I will agree EVERYBODY needs to practice it.
