they won't give a sh** regardless. I think it's hopeless to expect things to get any safer for motorcyclists. With all the distracted driving going on right now, it's worse to be in a car or truck too. defensive driving/riding is the only thing you can do, and in the case of the left-turning cager, I think there are times when no level of defensive riding would change the outcome.

Honestly though, I like your idea, I'm just a pessimist and I wonder how much impact it would have.

to the OP, glad your injuries weren't any worse. the left-turner across my path is my nightmare when I'm out riding. seems like there's opportunities for it to happen every time I go out.
