AAAWashington, D.C.AAA commends Senators Duckworth, Durbin, Fischer and Representative Bustos for their request of the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to review the effectiveness of Move Over laws.

Dodging the Roadkill: Tragedy

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – The motorcycle community is reeling this weekend after the news of a horrific accident that killed seven bikers in Randolph, New Hampshire.  The victims were members of the Jarheads Motorcycle Club which is comprised of former and active duty U.S. Marines.

Witnesses and First Responders said it was one of the most devastating accident scenes they had ever seen.  I’m not going to recount the details of the accident, as you can read all about it here.

When I first read the story, my heart just sank.  My emotions went from anger to sadness in a matter of minutes.  I think we all felt the same way, as we once again were reminded of the dangers of this lifestyle that we love so much.
