Re: Another reason why you flash your brake lights...
From the looks of the intersection, I would guess the speed limit is 40 or 45. To throw the rider 200 ft. Seems like impact would have been more but I'm not a forensics expert. The nail polishing is a good legal battle cry but the real issue is Drivers who cause death or injury because they violate the right of way of another (whether a motorcyclist, a pedestrian, a bicyclist, or cager) needs to have clear, strict, and equitable penalties administered. I'm sure she's distraught. She just took someone else's life because she simply wasn't paying attention to her primary responsibility which was safely operating a motor vehicle.
Very similar to what happened to one of our own, just last week. My heart goes out to these families and my prayers are for the safety of us all.
