You’ve seen the bumper stickers reminding us that “bikes have equal rights” and to “watch out for bikers.”
In Milwaukee this weekend these stickers take on a whole new meaning. This weekend is Harley Davidson’s 105th Anniversary Celebration. There will be a lot more motorcycles on the roads in and around Milwaukee.
Sadly, I read about the first fatality of the HD Celebration. In Sheboygan a car struck a Harley rider. The car driver was treated at the ER and released. The bike rider was killed.
I’ve represented a great number of motorcycle owners over the years. Many of the collisions and serious injuries could have been avoided if the at fault driver would have just taken the bumper sticker’s advice: Bikers have equal rights.
