With any luck at all, this video will make you pay a little more attention when you’re driving today.
It shows the death of motorcyclist David Holmes of Norfolk England.
He was driving too fast when a driver who wasn’t paying enough attention turned in his path. He was killed instantly.
“I know (David) rode fast that day, he loved speed but he also loved life,” his mother, Brenda, says in the video. “I just hope that somebody benefits from the warning; that people slow down and take time to look for bikes.”
