Laws were broken: The yearly ride is a tragedy waiting to happen
This is my annual letter about the Vashon Motorcycle Enthusiasts.
Scanning a recent Beachcomber, I came to the snippet about the annual Vashon Motorcycle Enthusiast (VME) event. (Scene and Heard, Sept. 11)
One sentence stuck out in my mind — that there were no injuries reported.
Why would there be any injuries if the participants were following the laws?
I can tell you one thing. Laws were being broken right and left past my house for hours. And to tell you the truth, I am surprised there weren’t any accidents.
The VME event is a tragedy waiting to happen. And one of these years, I will be able to tell you I told you so.
