First off I would like to say I do not and have never been a motorcyclist so I cannot comment from a motorcyclists point of view but I am a car driver. In fact, I have, as I type this decided I will not give my point of view or opinion of this other than to say all drivers and riders, and I mean ALL, need to be more aware of whats happening around them and watch their speed whilst on the road. Also, I know theres a sort of thing between bike riders and car drivers where one always says the other is at fault or should pay more attention. Truth is we all need to. We are all vulnerable when we are on the roads driving whatever vehicle we are in or on.
While watching this video I actually paused it a few times to decide whether or not I wanted to proceed watching it. IT IS hard to watch but it hits home as a stark reminder of the dangers out there and how quick they can happen.
I am posting this so that all my fellow bloggers and readers will take heed and be careful whilst driving or riding.
This video can be distressing to see. Please don’t watch if you are easily upset
This is hard-hitting footage of a fatal collision in Norfolk has been released by police in a bid to get motorcyclists and drivers to think seriously about road safety. Viewers are warned that this video contains content which some may find distressing, but it does not show any graphic images of the rider during or after the collision and they are given the option to refrain from viewing.
My thoughts go out to the family and loved ones of David Holmes.
