I am wondering if the tall trees and shade on that roadway didn’t compromise her view. Regardless, the rule is never pull out, until it is entirely clear. I feel bad about this because when I was a new driver, I pulled out in front of a motorcycle on J-8 and Heaton. I had looked to my left, but did not see him till the very last second. I floored it and all was okay. But it scared me so much, that now I overly look at everything!
The lesson I learned was that motorcycles can sometimes blend in with shady trees, sunlit mix and darker areas combined. :(
Ride a motorcycle on the street and someone will eventually turn in front of you. So now we want to cut all the trees down?
Cut them down if it will save lives!
