Try being on a bicycle with those kinds of people on the road.
Not only are you vulnerable, you can't get out of the danger area with a twist of the wrist!
I have driven AND ridden across that stretch of freeway, as well as up and down the 5/805 corridor many, many times. 99% of the people out there are just trying to get home. ...but... there's that last 1%.
I hesitate to think what would have happened if the off-duty cop hadn't been around.
Westbound at 1745? I guess the eastbound traffic is much higher than the westbound, huh? Otherwise, HowTF could a car have kept up with a MC in traffic?!
