October 20, 2018 (La Mesa) -- La Mesa Police are advising motorcylists to “please slow down and be careful, your life may depend on it,” after investigating four accidents involving serious motorcycle collisions including a fatality crash in the past six weeks.  “Excessive speed has been a factor in all of these crashes,” a tweet sent by LMSD states.  #Slowdown #drivesafe

The latest occurred Monday at the intersection of University Avenue and Baltimore Drive, when a 56-year-old motorcyclist on a Harley Davidson failed to turn at an intersection and crashed into a parking lot, sliding 100 feet and breaking several bones.

Failed to turn?

It doesn't matter how fast you are going on any sort of vehicle if you " FAIL TO TURN".

That is Tbone intersection, how the heck does one " fail to turn"?

Drivers in a hurry...

This appears to be a common theme these days everywhere. What amazes me is how people study the DMV handbook, take a test, pass it and possibly a behind the wheel exam, then seemingly forget the laws and rules of the road once their set free! I have to wonder why these folks feel such self entitlement to do whatever they choose to do, and not give a damn about innocent pedestrians, bicyclists, or other drivers obeying the laws. Such a chaotic society we live in these days...
