so sad...sorry to say that some of these MTA bus drivers...well...just from my own experience..being cut off by them..them turning in front of me....I often think they think they own the road..and have their own set of rules of the road....too many motorcycle fatality's lately...people please watch out for motorcycles...you can't drive through us without killing us....RIP Manuel ........

While I'm always sad to hear of another motorcyclist taken. Many disregard the fact that the streets belong to ALL of us. Having said that, I don't believe the MTA bus drivers set out to cut anyone off. Living on Roscoe and working on Reseda has allowed me years of understanding how one safely maneuvers these giant cars that take (safely) & bring home (safely) our working class, students, & senior members of our communities..I, for one, have decided to flash the working vehicles or stop and wait, making it less difficult for them to re-enter the flow of traffic. I see people rudely hurry in front of them not the other way around.

Some one on the victims FB account posted that "Motorcycles are dangerous they should be banned" Well drivers of all vehicles are dangerous and they should be banned so maybe we should all just walk everywhere but then that would become dangerous as well because you would have people walking into your lane and cutting you off,making turns in front of you..not to mention getting human jacked and a running pursuit ensures,,,ridiculous you say? Yeah so was her post....Ride Safe my friends....and walk safe...

No question that people are flat out rude when it comes to respecting the motorcyclist! I'd say they're downright haters, therefore making a dangerous situation for our fellow motorists! Motorcycles don't kill people .......
