I look at what people are riding and those statistics don't surprise me at all. Accidents waiting to happen. Now if a car happens to be behind, that could be bad. I learned many years ago that those riders are (for the majority) NOT interested in a Lycra clad hotshot pointing out the risk so I go on and say a quiet good word for them.
