as a motorcycle driver for over 20 years I have NEVER see motorcycle drivers like the ones in Costa Rica. They are Reckless, Rude, Dangerous, Impatient, CRAZY and give NO FORE-THOUGHT to their actions and how they drive on ALL sides of the road. They do not care what reaction occurs due to their stupid actions. They put other passengers in cars, trucks and pedestrians in danger everytime they pass a car on the wrong side if the road. As long as they arrive safe, the hell with everyone elses safety.

I may just open my big truck door next time one tries to pass me at a red light or stop sign. We will see how fast they learn to sit and wait and stay the hell out of my lane.

OK, So there is something that has to be done with motorcyclists. They need to follow the law like every car on the road. You want to know why there are so many deaths every year. Well I am sure you don’t need to be told. I am sure every day you get passed on both sides by motorcycles in traffic. They weave in and out of traffic. They don’t head lights or signs. I am sure everyone reading this has almost hit a motorcyclist at least once per year. The amount of passengers make no difference, The way in which they ride does.
