Police increasing patrols for motorcycle safety
News from KGET 17:
Wayne Gallagher has been riding motorcycles all his life. He says the years of thrills have been mixed with the sadness of saying goodbye. “I’ve buried my fair share of friends.”

Reckless driving, either from motorcyclists or others on the road has caused motorcycle fatalities to go up 175% in California since 2001. Bakersfield Police Sergeant Melvin Johnson says that didn’t have to happen. “We believe it’s preventable obviously it comes down to the motorcyclists abilities and to everyone sharing the road and obeying the rules of the road.”

But according to Gallagher that rarely happens. He says he gets cut off or nearly hit dozens of times daily. In 2006, a reckless driver nearly cost him his life. “I had a guy turn left in front of me took me out woke up in he middle of the street with a helicopter in front of me and I was in the hospital for a week and rehab for 18 weeks it was tough,” says Gallagher.
