With summer here, bikes are out in full force. This is a simple reminder to pay extra attention and always looks twice.

According to ABC12, Sunday night, a man driving a truck that was going east on Caldwell hit a man on a motorcycle traveling north on Mackin. The biker was sent to the hospital but is expected to be okay.

Over the years, I've lost a few friends that ride. Some were due to the fault of the other driver and others due to careless driving on their part. If you ride a bike, you too need to be extra cautious when driving if you expect the same courtesy from other drivers.
