Thumbs down: Failure to yield
Sometimes the difference between life and death may just be a second look. The 59-year-old woman heading west on Washington Street, for example, might have thought twice before barreling into a left-hand turn and into 22-year-old Tanner Pike driving his motorcycle east on Washington - and ending his life - if she had looked twice or otherwise increased her driving awareness. Pike's father, Bill, a deputy with the Marion County Sheriff's Office is leading an awareness ride from Indianapolis through Brown County to Story, Ind. Riders can expect a couple stops, including for ice cream. They'll begin to gather at the Indiana Statehouse at noon July 21 and depart at 1:30 p.m. Pike hopes to raise enough money through donations and sponsorships to fund a local billboard reminding drivers to keep their eyes peeled for their two-wheeled brethren.
