There are lots of motorcycles speeding on the Southern State throughout the night. I can hear them from several blocks away at all hours of the night.

Motor cycles shouldn't go over the speed of 80 mph. Why do we need cars or motor cyvcles to go that fast. The speed limit is no more than 65. Most of the younger kids think it is a game to cut people off and in and between cars. You fall on a motor cycle going that fast, you are road pizza, and you deserve it if you ride like a dick. This kid was nothing but a perp, and he got what he deserved. The should take his license away for good.
