  1. I am certain that the old guy…age 90…didnt intend on taking this guys life. But when your 90 your reaction response time is in fact decreased. Some of these retired seniors need to re evaluate if perhaps it is time to sell the car and stop driving. Combined with the lost and confused tourons making last second lane changes and turns… The young people texting or high….its just a recipie for disaster. Why I sold my motorcycle…suicide mission to ride one in Pinellas. Just have my scooter and it rarely leaves the beach I live on. Very sad.

  2. This is exactly why my son sold his, even though the older man of 90 had the right away to turn left onto Belleair Rd, he had a turn signal going east on Belleair. I come upon the accident and the way I saw it the 90/yr. old man was traveling south on Keene in the left lane and had the left turn signal and he preceded to turn left. and the Motorcyclist was traveling North.
    It is such a loss, any death is. May God rest his Soul.
    BT.
