when are they going to learn to use a helmet, his death was almost instant and most of the damage received was his head. and this happened just before mother's day. very sad for the mom and family. he also left a one year old son without a father.

that is so horrible. they need to not only create a helmet law but enforce it.

Every day I'm out driving, I see crazy motorcyclists with no helmet and
flip flops driving in the center of the street like they have no fear.
I keep well away from them because they love to weave in and
out of traffic.

I just cringe every time I see it!

So tragic and so unnecessary. This is the reason why I will only rent large vehicles in Aruba...and stay to the right (driving like an old lady). Sadly, you have to be as much on your guard when driving in Aruba as you do in the crazy streets of NYC!
